Hello David,

There is plenty of material available on the web and because of the weak 
dollar taking the test now is quite good value - approx £130 for both 
exams. I've just passed LPI Level 1, its a bit harder than Linux+ but it 
is more widely recognised.

Leading Edge have some excellent free training material that they've 
produced for their training courses and have released under the GNU Free 
Documentation Licence:


IBM have a number of tutorials for LPI Level 1:

For 101:



For 102:


There are some manuals produced by LinuxIT that are also covered under the 
GNU Free Documentation Licence:


Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more information.
