I don't think this question can really be answered. First of all, what makes a command "advanced"? Consider the "find" command. Would you consider that a basic command? What about if used like this:

find . -type d -name CVS -exec rm -Rf {} \;

This will find every directory named "CVS" and delete it. Is that "advanced"? In my mind, the commands themselves are not basic or advanced, it's how you use them.

Are there certain things you want to do? Perhaps getting a "cookbook" of linux commands would show you some "tricks" and advanced usage of commands.

Hope that helps.
