An exhaustive list would be too long, and it depending on what you want to do you will use different commands. However, Canonical themselves provide this:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal

Edit: Sorry I see you've been on here for a while so you probably know the basics. It looks like Ubuntu now uses Dash as the default interpreter so you should look for dash resources for that. Of course you could still use things like Python, AWK, Perl and others under Ubuntu also.

Code:
compgen -c | sort -u > commands && less commands
Enjoy the goodness!

you can then search those at https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/index.html or use "man"

Hello

Most of the commands you find at the following link should be compatible with Ubuntu:
