As far as I know, at the moment there are no English or Dutch books covering the *latest* LPI 201/LPI 202 exams. However, if you can wait for a few months, there will. I have found a LPIC-2 Linux Professional Institute Certification Study Guide by Sybex on Amazon:


The page lists May 17, 2011 as the publication date.

I have used their LPIC-1 study guide successfully to prepare for the LPI 101/LPI 102 exams and I found it quite good, though sometimes a bit too terse. I intend to use their upcoming LPIC-2 study guide to prepare for the LPI 201/LPI 202 exams, as I expect it to be of the same quality (it has the same author, Roderick W. Smith).

Kind regards,
