This book is focused on the LPIC-1, not the LPIC-2 material for reference. The material is still good overall, even if some of the exams were updated/changed I will admit. One would have to compare with the current exam objectives a tad of course via LPI's web site, but then most doing Open Source based work tend to RTFM and Google things a bit. ;-)
My apologies for the delay in responding since I do get this list in Digest Format as well.
