Odds are you are reading this book because you have successfully passed the Linux+ or LPIC-1 certification exams and you are ready for the next challenge. This book focuses on one major goal: to help you prepare to pass the LPIC-2 exams (Exam 201 and Exam 202).
These are challenging exams because they cover a wide range of advanced Linux topics. In fact, some of these topics are large enough to be covered in books of their own.
It is important to realize that this book’s primary goal is to help you prepare to pass the LPIC-2 exam. As a result, the depth of the topics is specifically limited to what is exam-testable.
The rest of this introduction focuses on two topics: the LPIC-2 exam and a description of this book.
