    A buddy has brought up the idea of getting a linux cert (although im not a fan of the idea of a cert getting me anything other than knowledge and a piece of paper prooving such) and i am definately toying with it. I do not claim to be a linux guru (nor do i believe myself to be anywhere near :) )...so i think this would be a fun step to gain ground and knowledge. So my question is (to those with the cert) what books would you recommend to study from, and (for those guru's out there) what books are recommeded for solidifying novice/intermediate stature and/or rising above?

    the test in in about amonth or so (and is at a discounted to free rate) so im looking to study away most of my downtime heh

    currently looking at the following:

    Those books are fine, but I found that I learned more by simply spending a lot of time in a Linux enviroment.

    In a *nix environment its abut what you can do...not what you know.



    Learn by doing and you'll be way ahead.
