Good Linux overview.

I am already familiar with Linux, but if anyone who needs to get in touch with Linux after a long time, I would suggest you to listen these and recall all your Linux concepts in a day or so.
Not only for previous learners, it is good for beginners as well. I like the way the narrator, kept his calm and exchanged the basic concepts in a clear way.

Perfect Primer

This audible is a perfect primer to get started with Linux... Well, I should say it's perfect for anyone who wants more than just the Windows or Mac "experience" out of Linux. For those intimidated by the terminal... it's not so scary. This class express that. It just barely brushes the surface of the power of the command line, but that's fine. This IS an intro course. The instructor uses much more energy to his voice, but you can tell he's knowledgeable and enjoys what he does. He walks you through the very basics, just enough to get your feet wet enough to go further in, but AGAIN this is and INTRO course. I'm not sure what else to say other than I enjoyed it. It was what I was expecting and hoping for and look forward to getting deeper into the world of Linux.

Kept me interested

This is the book for you if you're interested in Linux. Of all the books I have invested in for either reference or a tutorial resource this book ranks highly amongst them. You need no prior knowledge to benefit from this audiobook.

The author will let you know step by step guide using a logical and systematic approach. The examples he laid out are in detail, concise, and easy to understand.

I like the fact that this guidebook is not superficial. It explains how the Linux system works. A background on OS theory helps in listening to the book, but I believe beginners can make the best out of it too.

If you want to learn how to use Linux, but don't know where to start, then listen to this guidebook. Give this book a try.

"If you want to learn how to use Linux, but don't

If you want to learn how to use Linux, but don't know where to start, then listen on. Knowing where to start when learning a new skill can be a challenge, especially when the topic seems so vast.

The book was quite informative and easy to grasp, although there were some places I did get stuck in eventually figured it out. I particularly liked the sample data sets that the course provides. They were helpful to practice on. The strategies and techniques are wonderful.

I have learned many helpful tips and tricks from this book. I found the techniques very easy to follow. I can say that this was one of the best courses I have taken from Audible. The explanations are very clear and informative. It also tackles about Python and why it is best suited for Linux programming.

Overall, this course is excellent for a total absolute beginner. Totally worth the bucks spent. I will go through this guide one more time to get better at it.

GREAT JOB!

Is a short lesson but very in depth . I enjoyed taken the course and will therefore recommend to others to take it before taken a complete session . I will suggest to the tutor to give out the meanings of the options to commands. That makes it easy to memorizes . Thank you

How to program

The authors of this course were able to explain the linux platform in great detail. Though they explain How to program in C++ and Python, I practiced the command lines with Debian VM and the command lines work just as well. They were able to guides you how to avoid common mistakes when using the terminal and the best part of it all is guiding the users how to apply coding methods in more than one way to make the process easier. I only wish they could provide us how to install a new program in the Linux system. Though this course is more than free ( in only $20), it is worth some good monetary values. Looking forward to their future ventures!

Don't miss it!

Linux: Bible of 4 Manuscripts in 1: 4 Books in 1 by Daniel Jones is a great course especially for all beginners. This book was amazing. The examples are concise and to the point.

Daniel lays out the material very well and makes the guide interesting. He provided the information clearly and from the ground up, which is very good especially for new users.

I was a complete beginner when I started to study this Linux book and I really liked it. I have learned even more here than I did during my course at university. The content is exactly what I wanted. It's well-organized, clear, and concise.

With this book, I have understood the concepts behind some of the commands and procedures I run and do. I strongly recommend this course to all new Linux programmers.

Glad to have it

In this book you'll know the reason why you need to use Linux even when your computer’s operating system is working perfectly. I was happy to learn new things that I never knew before. So blessed to have it.
