"This is one of the very few tech books that I've actually read from cover to cover, and I must say that I'm glad I did. Certification, for someone who hasn't taken the time to do it, can be a scary process indeed. ...this book is much more than a listing of Linux exams and costs. It examines every aspect of obtaining a certification, from selecting and preparing for the exam, to financial options to pay for the training and the exam, to advertising your new status and (hopefully) advancing your technical career."

"What's Good? In short, everything. This is one of those books that is aimed at the Linux market, but can be used by everyone in the computer industry who is looking at professional certification. The chapters on planning, financing and advertising your certification are especially helpful to everyone, regardless of the certification pursued."

"What's Bad? About the only thing that I found that I disliked was the fact that the website screenshots were taken with Internet Explorer rather than a browser that is better accepted in the Linux community."
