While much of the material is found in any Unix/Linux textbook, the most
useful items are the exercises embedded in each module, and the tests. The
author has spent some time structuring the course and linking exercises so that
the student can understand how to potentially use the OS utilities.

The tests are designed to provide immediate feedback.

Technical Remarks:

Navigation is not intuitively obvious. To begin the tutorial, click on the
Assessments link, found near the top of the page.

In general the test material is easy for the student to use. Many tests offer
immediate feedback. There are a couple of "matching term" tests whose format
needs to be clarified. Their current table format with borders is a bit
confusing. The borders should be removed and the cell widths should be widened.
