Linux is the “Next Big Thing” when it comes to server platforms. However, for most network administrators, Linux is surrounded by arcane terms. Blended Systems has put together a set of tools to assist people going for the Linux Professional Certifications. The learning aids were written prior to taking the LPI tests so are not brain dumps. As always, we feel that if you know the topic well, you can pass the tests.
