Hi Imran

Yes thats right.
That o'reilly book is a pretty good representation of the current LPI 1
objectives, but as you can see the LPI objectives do cover a few more

With the new revised LPI 1 objectives (starting April 2009) - I wonder
if that o'reilly book will be any good now.
Does anyone know how different the new objectives are from the old ?

Are any of the major publications currently working on a new LPI book
that specifically covers the April 2009 objectives - any release date
for books ?
