As suggested by my tutor, Ben Askins, here are some shortcuts for use in the command line:

Tab Completion: Press Tab to complete folder and file names

Control + a: Go to the beginning of the line

Control + e: Go the the end of the line

Option + b: Move back one word

Option + f: Move forward one word

Up/Down Arrow Keys: Repeats previous commands

Control + w: Delete last word typed
