    Just have to say, I used these notes to learn about linux more than a year back before getting my first linux job. I finally decided to sit the linux+ exam and passed it pretty easily. While I didn't use these notes for my most recent study, I have to say they definitely helped me get a career working as a linux admin.

    It is but you can still schedule the 101 and 102. The original post was from 10 years ago, so I'm sure the notes are a bit outdated.
