LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell: Covers Gene&hellip by Jeff Dean
This book is so much better than Linux in a Nutshell (2nd edition). It is perfect as a learning aid and study guide for LPI Certification. I realize that newer editions of Linux in a Nutshell exist but who cares? This book in my opinion is all you need and is a much better alternative. This book is still 1st edition while Linux in a Nutshell has released 4 editions - this should say something about the two books! I haven't found any glaring errors as some reviewers have but of course the errata on the O'Reilly website will resolve the issue.
Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickS&hellip by Elizabeth Castro
5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome for newbies, Jan. 18 2004
Firstly you should have some programming background to get the most out of this book - Unix platform being the most helpful. This book leaves no guesswork for the reader and provides everything you need to know in using CGI today! The best part of Elizabeth's books is that she provides a website for Q&A, updates, and revisions as supplemental material. She is truely one of the few authors who takes care and effort in trying to maximize a reader's understanding of the material.

The Unix Programming Environment by Brian W. Kernighan
The Unix Programming Environment by Brian W. Kernighan
4.0 out of 5 stars Yes its great, Jan. 18 2004
This is the book I wish I had as an undergrad. I only purchased the book out of curiosity but was delighted with its content. If you are new to *nix programming then this book is a must! If this book demonstrates anything it reveals the true strength of Unix -- timeless. After all, the book was published in 1984. I always judge a technical book by its cover and this book is no exception (the less flashy the cover, the better the content). Eventually you'll need this book so you might as well buy it now.
