I was a bit annoyed that he hand-waves past one of the biggest RHEL7 changes-- network interface naming. He notes that one can configure a network interface to be called 'eth0' and then proceeds to use minimally changed examples from RHEL6. I would have liked to have seen more of a RHEL7-ish way of doing things rather than a quick and dirty "keep it like RHEL6" approach, but I also understand that if we waited for this book to be perfect, RHEL8 probably would already be released before the "perfect" book would be.
I've also had trouble finding the online errata. The site they list for downloads and errata doesn't seem to know this book exists yet. Maybe it's still too new.
Now this book was not my only source. I never use a single source for training when I really want to know the content and not simply pass a test. I used an online academy of linux (search it), then got this book on kindle, then purchased this book on paper, built the labs, lived it at work and at home, and finally, my employer graciously sent me to Red Hat for the rapid RHCSA course. Every bit helped for sure, but this book really helped guide me in the right direction and fill in gaps that I would have missed or dismissed as unimportant.
I personally find the writing style engaging and the examples and labs practical. I was dubious on a few points until I took the exam and understood why. I perceive the authors truly know the material both academically and practically. If I'm just looking for a negative; I find the layout of the first couple of chapters, which handle lab setup, confusing. I would prefer a simple list of all the configuration options and then a further explanation after. Instead, I find I have to read all of it and take notes. I did read it, all of it, but I still had to flip back and forth a lot.
I love it when I find good, thorough and engaging technical material. I bought this book based on the other customer reviews and I have not been disappointed. I will use this same book the study for the RHCE also. It has really been money well spent and FAR cheaper, and in many ways more comprehensive than classroom training.
By the way, every resource I used missed something I needed to know. It is vital to use multiple resources because they all miss something.
