Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you mean this to be an answer to the OP, then it makes no sense. With no X installed, how would you research CLI tutorials, manuals, etc.?
Or perhaps you mean don't install X, so you are forced to use the CLI??? OK--if you want to learn to walk, don't buy a car...
Indeed, having no X on the system means you are FORCED to use the CLI. You are FORCED to learn, or you can't use your system. How you'd research CLI tutorials? Who needs CLI tutorials? People learned their way around the command line long before millions of useless articles with the exact same topic appeared : "LOL! most 10 used commands in linux!! gots to read this if u r newbie from windows roflmfao". Such tutorials are harmful. First of all people who are absolutely new to linux write them because they need to prove to themselves they have "skills", and 2nd of all they are "minimal" from an informative point of view. How are you going to research manuals? Easy. Don't know how to use `ls`?
