Hi and welcome to LQ. Always try to google your question before posting here. You will find literally hundreds of tutorials on basic unix/linux commands. You can always ask when you want some clarification with one of the commands.

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, OpenBSD, NetBSD or PC-BSD.


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.
