This is my chosen text for my Red Hat cert. I’ve made it through chapter 4 so far and I’ll update this as I make progress. Unfortunately, while it appears to be a good text for the most part I do concur with a number of negative comments from Amazon and other sites.
Things do seem a bit disjointed. I find myself skipping forward and back again trying to set things up. For example, you’re expected to set the virtual machines up before you learn how to set them up. I do like the general layout and the exam and real-world tips that are broken out of the main text. I’m not put off by the issues enough to knock the book.
