Comments about oreilly LPIC-1: Linux Professional Institute Certification Study Guide, 3rd Edition:

If you're new to Linux, you'll learn a lot about the way it works. Some (very few) information won't be 100% up-to-date in 2015 but it's still interesting to see how thing used to work before.

The structure is a bit odd: the test answers are at the end of the book (it isn't handy when you only have the ebook), the exam is before the first chapter, and there is no mention of the additional resources (from the website) before the end of the book.
