I use ubuntu exclusively, i have use other distros and i am not afraid of a command line. I would love to get a cert for linux and maybe get a job while im pursuing my degree, i just dont know how ready i am for these tests. I know to cd, dir -ls, etc but i am not familiar with cat, grep etc and only know they exist from forum posts :) So i know i need A LOT of work, so if you know of a awesome comprehensive book or website please post :)

LPI Certification in a Nutshell. You can get it on Amazon and I have seen it in many Borders and Barnes and Noble.

That said, you will learn to pass the test, but not learn anything.

IMHO, the Redhat certification tests and courses truly give you an education that will prepare and enable you for a professional Linux career.

howdy
the http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lpicertnut/ book reviews say it's short on up to date info.
some of the sites here look good, but I wouldn't be able to recommend which ones are best.
http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=intitle%3Afree+lpi+training&btnG=Search&meta=

www.intelligentedu.com/free_gnu_linux_lpi_training_manuals.html
seems up to date.
ebook-free-lpi.qarchive.org/ says free but isn't.
http://www.edcomp.com/search.aspx?query=lpi+certification&start=40
seems very good.
