$ info bash (assuming you are using same.)

$ info coreutils \t Both these a bit intimidating but full of stuff.

Good books:
Linux in a Nutshell--O'Reilly
Bash Guide for Beginners---free at TLPD.org

search Google for "linux commands"--there are several sites

One really neat trick is "man -k keyword". E.g: to find commands relating to files: "man -k file"

I can only suggest to have a completely different approach when starting to learn command line tools: free your mind from every windows stuff and try to learn linux from its very basics. I think this approach is more funny and brings to more satisfaction as far as things become clear on a pure Linux perspective.
A good place to look for documentation is http://www.tldp.org. Check the "Guides" and in particular "GNU/Linux Command-Line Tools Summary" and "Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide". Don't forget to check also the official documentation of Ubuntu to learn what are its specific features and philosophy. Enjoy!

Assume,
$ apropos whatever
is the same thing. But easier to remember IMHO.

What it does is search the titles of man pages for the word 'whatever'.

I use it all the time. (Not stricktly on topic, perhaps, but ctrl-r does a reverse history search and is also unbelievably useful, for example ctrl+r up might yeild 'updatedb', hitting ctrl-r again another comand with up in it....)
