Product Description: A new edition of this title is available, ISBN-10: 0137003889 ISBN-13: 9780137003884 Praise for "A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux(R)" "I am so impressed by how Mark Sobell can approach a complex topic in such an understandable manner. His command examples are especially useful in providing a novice (or even advanced) administrator with a cookbook on how to accomplish real-world tasks on Linux. He is truly an inspired technical writer ""-George Vish II, Senior Education Consultant, Hewlett-Packard Company" "Overall, I think it's a great, comprehensive Ubuntu book that'll be a valuable resource for people of all technical levels.""-John Dong, Ubuntu Forum Council Member, Backports Team Leader" "The JumpStart sections really offer a quick way to get things up and running, allowing you to dig into the details of his books later.""-Scott Mann, Aztek Networks" "Ubuntu is gaining popularity at the rate alcohol did during prohibition, and it's great to see a well-known author write a book on the latest and greatest version. Not only does it contain Ubuntu-specific information, but it also touches on general computer-related topics, which will help the average computer user to better understand what's going on in the background. Great work, Mark ""-Daniel R. Arfsten, Pro/ENGINEER Drafter/Designer" "I read a lot of Linux technical information every day, but I'm rarely impressed by tech books. I usually prefer online information sources instead. Mark Sobell's books are a notable exception. They're clearly written, technically accurate, comprehensive-and actually enjoyable to read.""-Matthew Miller, Senior Systems Analyst/Administrator, BU Linux Project, Boston University Office, of Information Technology" "I would so love to be able to use this book to teach a class about not just Ubuntu or Linux but about computers in general. It is thorough and well written with good illustrations that explain important concepts for computer usage.""-Nathan Eckenrode, New York Local Community Team" Praise for Other Books by Mark Sobell "I currently own one of your books, "A Practical Guide to Linux(R)." I believe this book is one of the most comprehensive and, as the title says, practical guides to Linux I have ever read. I consider myself a novice and I come back to this book over and over again.""-Albert J. Nguyen" "Thank you for writing a book to help me get away from Windows XP and to never touch Windows Vista. The book is great; I am learning a lot of new concepts and commands. Linux is definitely getting easier to use.""-James Moritz" "I have been wanting to make the jump to Linux but did not have the guts to do so-until I saw your familiarly titled "A Practical Guide to Red Hat(R) Linux(R)" at the bookstore. I picked up a copy and am eagerly looking forward to regaining my freedom.""-Carmine Stoffo, Machine and Process Designer to pharmaceutical industry" "I am currently reading "A Practical Guide to Red Hat(R) Linux(R)" and am finally understanding the true power of the command line. I am new to Linux and your book is a treasure."

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
