    Default Linux Beginner

    Hello all,

    Once I am done with my Sec+ certification I really want to get into Linux and learn about it.

    I have not much experience with it other than what was required to learn for A+ certification. I have downloaded Ubuntu and installed it on a VM to practice.

    Where would be a good place to start as a beginner to learn the basics and move up from there. Any book out there which will gradually start from zero and explain throughout the Linux systems ?

    A Linux based system is far more versatile than, say, a MS Windows based system.

    This maybe a good place to start [https://www.lifewire.com/beginners-g...-linux-4090233]

    I would start here if you are a complete scrub https://linuxjourney.com/

    Then pick up these two books as the others have suggested:
    1.The Linux command line
    2.How Linux Works

    Yeah, I took this back in early 2016...however, I know it goes into depth some, but it is definitely an intro course. The test is basically open book & you will earn a certificate of completion & not a certification. :P

    Linuxacademy.com is good. Udemy, pluralsight, youtube, and cybrary.it
