    I wonder what are the best books and other study materials for the Linux+ ?

    Used to administrate several Redhat 7 and AIX servers for a company i worked for and use FreeBSD on my desktop so i have a fair amount of experience.

    Thought i may spend a few hours a week going through the Linux+ material to eventually sit the exam , however, not allowing it to interfere with my MCSA progress that comes first at the moment.

    thanks

    AUX? Am I being a daft ex IBM employee or do you mean AIX?

    I hear the Mike Myers book is good (2008 ). I quite fancy this one myself next year

    Haha I was expecting you say "er no thicko aux" then. Some system I didn't know about.

    Yeah the Myers book looks really good. Used his 2008 Security+ book and smashed that exam

    lol .... nahhh one of my silly typos :rolleyes: . the only AUX i know is "auxiliary".

    i'll have a look at the meyers book. sybex seems to get good write-ups and exam cram (which i have started look at for some MS certs) has a few.

    Oh I'm not sure. They seem to focus on CompTIA don't they. Good old exam cram 2 and MS press + CBT Nuggets if you've got the budget can get you through anything IMO :D

    I had to stop my MCSA for a while so rather than rereading the MSpress books i am going to try the exam cram's.
    CBT Nuggets are good i used them awhile back. I also like the look of testout, however, far to expensive for me.
