Command Line Tips: using CTRL + Left / Right arrow will allow you to move through a long command word by word instead of moving through each letter. Makes making adjustments to a long command much quicker.
Use the "cd -" to move back and forth between previous directories. cd into a directory, then cd into a different one. Now do "cd -" and you will be back to the first directory.
