The material was very well organized, and easy to follow. It builds solidly on the concepts already established in LFS201, and does not repeat itself, unless necessary. The labs were very hands-on and required proper thinking. There was the right amount of guidance vs letting us get our hands dirty.

Labs are really well documented, and the graphics in the slides make things clearer. Much appreciated the diagrams showing most used files for specific services.
Aug 2020
Each topic (chapter) is covered in depth, with suitable pointers to external resources for further reading. There is an abundance of labs to complement the written content, comparable to that of LFS201.
