Here is a great basic computer course for free, called Jan's Computer Literacy 101. Other sets of lecture notes I have seen online are pretty much bare text. While the writing is often great, such text-only notes do not take advantage of the possibilities of web pages. So you will see some animations and graphics that enhance the text and, hopefully, make it clearer.

Lions' Commentary on Unix : With Source Code

John Lions (New South Wales) was a Lecturer in Computer Science when an early version of UNIX arrived at the University of New South Wales in 1974. He wrote his commentary as an Operating Systems text for his students in 1977 but was never permitted to have it published commercially. He died several weeks after the book was published (on Saturday the Dec 5th, 1998). "The Lions book", cherished by UNIX hackers and widely circulated as a photocopied bootleg document since the late 1970's, is finally available in an unrestricted edition. This legendary underground classic, reproduced without modification, is really two works in one:

1) the complete source code to an early version (Edition 6) of the UNIX operating system, a masterpiece in itself!

2) a brilliant commentary on that code by John Lions

A Free version of this book is available in Postscript format from:

7) Frequently Asked Questions about Technical Training:

Each month we will answer one of the frequently asked questions we receive about computer and technical training and career development. They will be archived on a separate FAQ page on our website after several months.

Sept. 2000 FAQ: Is it really necessary to have a degree AND additional certification(s)? If so, is it practical to pursue them both at the same time? Also, what are the best websites where I can find the most up-to-date information on training and necessary skills?

Answer: It is not necessary to have both a degree and additional certificates. However, having both will increase your marketability, giving you more choices to select from. You can always go after the certificates later after earning your degree. If you want the best job offers, be sure to earn and get your degree. It may not be practical for you to pursue a certificate at the same time as earning your degree. Some of the technical aspects will make a little more sense to you once you gain some experience on the job. It can use a certificate for leverage to obtain an increase in salary or a better position.

Here are some of the best websites for certifications and training: - - The best Free training resources for Microsoft certifications. Offers a complete exam testing interface along with an integrated course reader. All questions have been written by Microsoft Certified Trainers and have been designed to teach the core knowledge required to understand a technology and pass the exam.
