Highly Recommended

A good refresher for terms and basic operations and it explains in great detail about two kinds of code and how they work and it also gives you a nice background knowledge on the linux programming as well as the excel programming. But as far as I see my fascination how everything works will be short lived and my mere interest for listening this book was to learn about excel and linux programming and I saw the title said beginners guide so I figured to give it a shot and this book didn’t fail me and it’s very easy to understand and I know that it is better to master one programming language than to know a little of everything.

Also this book has helped me to figure out which among those programming languages I should focus on and this is the great thing about this audiobook and it gives you a glimpse of the syntax and features of two different programming languages and it is important for us recruiter to understand their work and little about their language and i like how this audiobook is narrated and the author really tries his best to explain the terminologies in easy term so it is easy to understand and this book is a must listen book as an introduction to programming and i wish when I was taking a computer class I would have had this book then and i can now code without any problem at all and this study guide counts with a lot of examples and step by step guides, explaining basic programming examples as well as more complicated stuff.

This was a great book for programmers to read

This was a great book for programmers to read. It had a lot of very general, yet very useful advice for programmers. I loved the theory of programming. But the book isn't really about technology, is it? It's about craft and attitude. That's the thing that makes the book so gush worthy. You read the thing and you realize "oh, so this is how grown-ups hack". I wonder how much of this will actually sink in and affect my daily life as a programmer, though. Will I be that extra fraction more rigorous in my approach? Will I maybe be a little bit book.

I would recommend this as a foundation in Linux

The instructor did an excellent job of simply teaching practical navigation around the command line interface of Linux.
I would absolutely recommend this as a foundational Linux class for absolute beginners also for Advanced as well.

Too many courses go into every option of every command; most of which we do not ever use.
This training simply directs you to use the specific commands.
Like all language learning, you pick up the dry definitions info as real-world examples are executed, such that strong learner take-away result.

Yes, I am not technical side candidate I want to change my profession most of the topics you provided is easy to understand. It’s really helps me how to understand and think about high-level programming concepts in order to become a better programmer. Also have any idea of Advanced Strategies.

This book does what the other Linux books do

This book does what the other Linux books do not, explains in more detail why, and doesn't just give projects without some insight and proper explanation.

I have learnt a lot from this great audiobook!

Very good narration of information with explanations of why formats are used.
So far the instructors of each course have each used different ways of doing the same things which helps me find out what works best for me.

Good course, there is a lot of information that I will use. I learned how to use commands to find and change files as well as do some basic programing. Most useful were finding new (to me) commands that were not preloaded on the OS.

Mr. Daniel and Mr. Bahl were very knowledgeable of the subject Linux. I am very grateful to them for being enrolled in their class. I very detailed course. I have learnt a lot from this great book.

This book does not spoon feed the information

This book does not spoon feed the information, but presents topics in an understandable format that leaves the listener/reader in a way that they fully understand the information presented. A great Course. I was a bit apprehensive in the beginning looking at the small price tag, but absolutely fantastic. Very enlightening and a real keeper!

If you use Linux in your day-to-day work

If you use Linux in your day-to-day work, this popular pocket guide is the perfect on-the-job reference. Immaculate size and sufficient fundamental data for me to go up against the activity as a kind of perspective. This is an extraordinary fast reference when you require an answer now, I would suggest it for anybody utilizing Linux. Much appreciated .
