If you're talking about just shifting from buffer to buffer use C-x b.
By default you can go back to the last buffer just by hitting
<return>. If you want a different buffer, type in the buffer's name
you want to go to. Don't forget tab-completion. If you type in a
partial name you can hit <tab> and Emacs will complete the buffer name
for you. Then you hit <return>.

This is so handy that all my standing buffers begin with different
letters so all I have to do is use one letter and then tab-complete.

These aren't the only ways. C-x C-b will pop up a list of buffers
similar to a file manager. You can use it to travel to another buffer.
It also has many other capabilities.

A nifty little add-on is ebs.el. Using this you can C-tab through your
buffers similar to the way most people alt-tab through their programs.
Some window managers will hijack that key combination so it won't
work, however.

Hope this is what you were looking for.
