This book guides you through the maze of tools available in the overall TeX system. Beyond the core TeX program there are myriad drivers, previewers, printing programs, documentation facilities, graphics programs, etc. This book describes them all.

This book originally accompanied a 2-day course on using the LATEX typesetting system. It has been extensively revised and updated and can now be used for self-study or in the classroom. The audience is assumed to be computer-literate.
LaTeX is a macro package created to typeset documents attractively and consistently. This guide to the LaTeX markup language can serve as a useful resource for everyone from new users who wish to learn, to old hands who need a quick reference.

Many conventions you are using in the typesetting of plain text are inappropriate to maths. LATEX goes a long way to help you along with the style. This handout assumes that you have already read the Advanced LaTeX document.
