Here is a short, well-written book that covers the material essential for learning LaTeX. It includes incisive examples that teach LaTeX in a powerful yet abbreviated fashion. This is the handbook to have if you don't want to wade through extraneous material. It includes the following crucial features: numerous examples of widely used mathematical expressions; complete documents illustrating the creation of articles, reports, presentations, and posters; troubleshooting tips to help you pinpoint an error; details of how to set up an index and a bibliography; and information about online LaTeX resources.

Why do you need to learn LaTeX? LaTeX has become an extremely popular typesetting system and is widely used throughout the sciences. As a student, you may need to typeset reports and theses in LaTeX (particularly if you are a graduate student in any mathematics or computer science discipline). Or you may be someone who had planned to "eventually" get around to learning LaTeX, but you are still using older or less appropriate methods of typesetting. Procrastinate no more!

This second edition of the well-regarded and highly successful book includes additional material on the American Mathematical Society packages for typesetting additional mathematical symbols and multi-line displays; the BiBTeX program for creating bibliographies; the Beamer package for creating presentations; and the a0poster class for creating posters.
