im fairly new to linux and this forum and for about 3 months i have been using kubuntu and suse.my intentions are simple.
i would now like to take the Linux LPI exams from the beginning to the end but now i'm in a little doubt, let me explain.
for some time now i have being looking for a guide on how best to travel towards taking linux exams most prep information that i have found is either out dated or have little or no value at all that was until i stumbled on
it is this, the wealth of information that i was searching for. now that i have found it and before before i begin studying
(1) i would really like to know if all of the LPI exam-prep tutorials are current thats on this site?
(2) im confused because this site with respect to Linux mainly speaks about developerWorks.
does this mean i cannot take the exams because i'm not a programmer ?
(3) i have bought a book "linux rute user tutorial and exposition" by paul sheer.
can you say if this book complements the tutorial on this site ?
a link to the online book ( http://rute.2038bug.com/rute.html.gz )
(4) if you know or have this book can you tell me if it will help me passing all linux exams ?
i have good knowledge with computers and I.T, i also have taken exams in another operating system however i would like to take all linux courses starting from exam 101.
i do hope you can answer these few simple questions for me.
your answer is of value as it will aid me in better understanding the direction that i ought to take

Re: i want to do linux exams, need a little nudge in the right direction2008-05-12T02:30:01ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.With regard to your questions.
1) All the LPI tutorials that are currently on the site are all the LPI tutorials that are currently on the site. I have three LPIC-1 tutorials to complete and it is my intention to complete those in the reasonably near future.
2)The tutorials you are looking at are on the IBM developerWorks web site. You get the tutorials at no charge. We do mention any relevant portions of developerWorks. We'd like you to use developerWorks, but that's not a prerequisite to using the tutorials.
3) I haven't bought or read the book you cite, so I have no opinion pro or con. You are free to use whatever sources work for you. take a look at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/lpi/?S_TACT=105AGX03&S_CMP=ZHP for a few comments from users of our material.

first i must say the tutorials are worth their weight in gold. they are clear, concise and to the point without deviating
into unrelated paths.
i am already looking forward for your next set of tutorials to wrap my brain around.

The tutorials have been a great help.
The last tutorial is misnumbered. The feedback section also gives me error when I try to submit. Thus I have posted this information here...
(P.s. this is my first post... my intro. I am a junior developer primarily interest in python, embedded software and software testing)
