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'd recommend you start with this tutorial by Ryan Chadwick

Go step by step and try to implement it on terminal.

The best way to self-learn Linux is to get a ebook like Linux for Dummies and to replicate each command trying understand what they do. If this is done on a live Linux server, the results may be catastrophic, so I suggest you install free virtual machine software like Oracle VirtualBox and install any flavour of Linux in it to play around.

I could recommend some tutorial sites and books:


The Linux Documentation Project

Unix and Linux System Administration Handbook

Also Ubuntu has some training courses: Ubuntu training
