Book Synopsis

Your UNIX: The Ultimate Guide is both an outstanding pedagogical tool and an exhaustive reference. It is the ideal text for any Unix course. It can also be used for any introductory programming course that includes Unix and for advanced courses such as those on Operating Systems and System Administration. Excellent pedagogy is implemented throughout. Real-world examples make it easier for students to grasp concepts while chapters on advanced material take more experienced students beyond the basics. Over nine hundred exercises and self-test questions allow students to test and reinforce their understanding of material at different levels. This book also features coverage of Linux, where Linux differs from UNIX.
