A very good tutorial on the UNIX system, organized very well. The use of figures
or diagrams would enhance the learning experience of this site.

Good use of exercises with solutions so the students can test themselves on what
they have learned.

The author goes into great detail and it is truly at a basic level.

Technical Remarks:

The site is broken up nicely.

Very helpful site about find for finding information on UNIX. The site is easy
to understand but also provides detail information on UNIX. The site is easy to
move around in.

This is a very good tutorial which can be used to introduce students to the UNIX
operating systems.

However, there is mostly textual information with few diagrams and links. It
would be more useful if it was broken down into components which would allow the
user to better determine what information they wanted without a lot of
scrolling. Use of color to separate the different headings and examples would
also be useful.

Exercises are included which could be assigned by the instructor.

I spent a couple of minutes reviewing the material. I found it easy to
understand and I enjoyed the authors breakdown of the topic into each section of
unix.

Technical Remarks:

I found the navigation easy to use in finding information.

A liked the way the author started out with a basic description/definition of
UNIX and built upon that. The listing of simple commands was great.

Technical Remarks:

Text a little cryptic-looking but very readable.

Good use of structured links for navigation.

I spent about 15 min. I found information very accurate and useful. This is
the perfect place to learn about UNIX for beginners. Easy to navigate info.
Very useful table of content. The language that has been used is also very easy
to understand for any kind end-user. I feel it is worth to visit the site if u
are interested in Unix.

Easy to navigate. A good site designed for beginners of the Unix environment and
presented in a way that would make learning the material very easy.

1. I spent about an hour reading through the material.
2. The information appears to be very accurate, and the author should be
complemented for presenting such a complex project in such a simplified way.
3. Again, the content is very informational, but because of the subject matter I
would recommend more diagrams or illustrations. The straight text along with
the complicated UNIX subject matter makes it difficult to understand. I did
appreciate the numerous examples and exercises located throughout, but again
they could be complemented with some additional illustrations.
4. The module is quite simple to use. Navigational buttons provided allow the
user to easily move from chapter to the next.

I spent 15 minutes browsing this basic tutorial. The content is definitely
presented from a beginner level. The information is well organized and thorough.
A student new to this subject matter area could easily follow the content.
