    I really haven't found a Sybex book that I've liked (more than the competition) so far. But across this forum I've seen good recommendations for the Roderick book. Think I might have to get a copy myself..

    I cant stand the Sybex Linux+ book...I thought it was just the CISSP book that was bad, but the way the material is presented is very dry IMO. I'm finding the LinuxAcademy and even the TestOut videos (via WGU) more engaging. I would have rather went with the AIO book; have had a lot of success with those in the past.
