There are SO many sites out there just a Google away... But here are some:

1) flossmanuals.net
2) linuxcommand.org
3) linux newbie guide

As for creating a shortcut to the Terminal:

1) Open main menu
2) Go to Accessories
3) Right-click on Terminal icon
4) Click "Add to panel" (this will put an icon in the panel which will launch Terminal for you when you click on it)

Keyboard close terminal = exit <enter>
