Do you have access to a linux box? If not you can go to http://distrowatch.com
for a list of linux distros. If you prefer a unix compatible OS try these: FreeBSD
If you do not want to install any linux or BSD distros, you can signup for a FREE unix shell account at http://sdf.org
. It uses netbsd, a unix compatible OS. You can then practice unix commands. However as a free user, you will be limited to the commands on the system whereas to a paid member. SDF/Unix tutorials found here http://sdf.org/?tutorials
Also, check out youtube. They have linux and BSDs command tutorials. BTW, linux and unix may have similar commands but some will act differently eg. switches/options to the command.
