    Default Good UNIX book

    Hi,

    I am trying to catch up to speed on Solaris 10 flavor of Unix. Can anyone suggest a good basic book to start with?

    Someone told me that Unix Visual Quick start guide 3rd edition by Eric Ray is very good. Any thoughts? Thanks

    I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Admi...9990849&sr=8-2

    I've just been tinkering around though. I don't know enough to say whether or not its good. I typically like their books though.

    Thanks dynamik...I saw that at Barnes and Noble but I think that it might be a bit too soon to look at a narrowly focused certification guide. I wanted to get comfortable with Unix in general first.

    However, it will be something to consider afterwards. Thanks.

    Whoops, sorry. I misunderstood your question.

    Visual Quickstart books are usually pretty good.

    Very profound signature, shednik!

    dynamik thanks for the additional info....I heard the Unix in a nutshell was very good too but not as a primary guide. Thanks!
