LaTeX for Beginners

The UK TeX Users' Group periodically runs a course for new LaTeX users. The course notes and examples are here.

There are three master documents: one to make the slides, one to make the handouts and one to make the tutor handouts, which include timings and other reminders.

Using the slides

The slides are designed to cover the basic material of the course. We tend to add extra ideas in as the course runs. What seems appropriate depends on the group of students.

Running a course

Experience suggests that the material here works well for a full day course. For this to work, the students need to have a computer already set up to use LaTeX. A full TeX Live installation is probably the easiest way to go.

The timing given in the tutor notes is approximate. Depending on the group, something like half an hour at the end of the day for general questions seems to work well.

For Course Developers

If you are modifying this course and want to see possible errors, use

make -f Makefile_non_silent

rather than

make
