Terminal is the Unix command line. It's similar to DOS in the sense that they're both command lines, but Unix predates it by at least 10 years. Just about any tutorial of Unix commands would be helpful in learning about Terminal. Here is a pdf I found that talks about the OS X Terminal which seems to have some good information.

Here's a bash guide for beginners (bash is the shell that terminal uses)
