This book reflects the efforts of a number of experienced Linux professionals to prepare for the LPIC-2 exam. It is – and always will be – a work in progress. The authors previously obtained their LPIC-1 levels, and wanted to participate in the exam for various reasons: to help LPI with their beta-testing, to learn from it and to help others to pass the exam. And, last but not least, for the fun of it.
In my opinion, one of the most important milestones set in the Linux world is the possibility for certifying our skills. Admittedly, you do not need certification to write Open Source software or Open Source documentation – your peers certainly will not ask for a certificate, but will judge you by your work.
