Your local library might have something in the vain of Linux System Administration or Unix Administration...

In the terminal, run
Code:
echo $PATH
You should see something like this...
Code:
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin
Run the ls command on each of those directories to see a list of commands. For every command there look at it's associated manual page (see man command by typing "man man" in terminal) and/or help documentation. For example, for ls you can do the following.
Code:
man ls
info ls
ls --help
You can use the 'q' key to quit the manual pages.

Do that for every command in the system and you will become extremely well acquainted with available commands. You could also see this thread where I recommend reading for another user.

Do you have a computer with Linux installed? If not, do that first.

the best practice is often simply trying things...

You definitely need access to a Linux system so that you can practice eg dual-boot, LiveCD etc, then refer to this tutorial
http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz

You can get distros to install from www.distrowatch.com; try to get same or similar to the one on your course.
Tell us what that distro is.
