I'm currently a student in college studying computer networking. Out of all the things I'm studying, my strong suit seems to be Linux. With spring break coming up I would like to use the time to study for my Linux+ certification exam.

I'm looking for suggestions for good sites, books, etc, from those who are Linux+ certified.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

I'ld recommend its better to start with

Ryan Chadwick Tutorial Go step by step and try to implement it on terminal.


The Best way , when self learning linux is to get a ebook like "linux for dummies" and to replicate every command and try to understand what they do , If done on a live linux server , results may catastrophic , so I suggest you to install free virtual machine software like Oracle Virtualbox and to install any flavour of linux in it and to play around,
