This doc­u­ment is for you if you don't know any­thing about TeX or LaTeX, but want to see what is in­volved. For in­stance, maybe you are a grad­u­ate stu­dent who has been ad­vised to try writ­ing doc­u­ment us­ing LaTeX. It walks you through writ­ing a doc­u­ment of a cou­ple of pages, in­volv­ing both plain text and math­e­mat­ics, and should only take a cou­ple of hours. At the end you will have an idea if the sys­tem could help you, and there are a cou­ple of rec­om­men­da­tions for tu­to­ri­als.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/first-la­tex-doc . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/first-la­tex-doc (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .

first-la­tex-doc – A doc­u­ment for ab­so­lute be­gin­ners

The doc­u­ment leads a reader, who knows noth­ing about , through the pro­duc­tion of a two page doc­u­ment.

The user who has com­pleted that first doc­u­ment, and wants to carry on, will find rec­om­men­da­tions for tu­to­ri­als.
