here are few:
alt-ctrl-(F1-F7):to switch between differnet terminals..or if gui is installed then to switch between gui and text mode
alt-ctrl-backspace:to kill xserver
ctrl-l:to clear screen of a terminal(similar to clear)
ctrl-c:to cancel a command
ctr-d:to exit from terminal
ctrl-r:to search backward for a command
ctrl-a:to go to the beginning of command line
ctrl-e:to go to the end of command line
alt-f:to go forward by one word on the command line
alt-b:to go backward by one word on the command line
ctrl-k:to kill the command line
alt-d:to delete one word to the right
tab:to enable auto completion

gui specific:
ctrl-q:mostly to quit from and application(like gimp,konqueror)
ctrl-w:to quit from nautilus
and what the hell GUI key shortcuts can be easily it is waste to explain those shortcuts.
