The Art of Unix Programming
This is as close to a textbook as this course has. The full text of the book is available on-line, though I recommend you just buy it. Eric Raymond is a great author, fun to read, with lots of good ideas. However, you're definitely getting his take on the world, so be a bit skeptical.

Unix @ USNA Information
This is information specifically about using Unix at USNA and as part of the Computer Science Department.
Shells
Your default shell here is tcsh. You can check out http://www.tcsh.org/Home. Check out http://www.geog.ucl.ac.uk/~plewis/teaching/unix/csh.html for a quick tutorial on csh shell script programming - all of this should be valid for tcsh as well.
Version Control
We've talked about PRCS in class (documentation).
