I looked at the courses on the URL above and cannot recommend them for UNIX, I'm sorry to say. Please let me know your current expertise and experience plus some words on where you want to be in your career with UNIX and I am happy to make a few book recommendations. Here is an old favorite which most UNIX folks have read:

<B>Unix Shell Programming (Hayden Books Unix System Library) <BR>
by Stephen G. Kochan, Patrick H. Wood (Contributor)

<A HREF=""><IMG SRC="" border=0></a>
This was my first text for UNIX shell scripts. This is a great book and highly recommended. If you click on the photo, it will take you to for more details.

Both are published by O'Reilly.
