The real gem in Mathematica is its online help functionality which can
be reached by pressing the 'F1' key at any time. Here you have access
to the documentation for *all* functions and packages in Mathematica.

A nice little trick is to highlight the function you are interessted in
and then press 'F1'.
For example if you want the details about the Mathematica function
If[], then write If[] in your notebook, highlight it with the mouse and
hit 'F1'

All the documentation has examples, you justr have to press the little
triangle in the bottom left of the help page.

No problem, happy exploration :-)

- oh yeah i almost forgot; the written manual called "The Mathematica
Book" is also found electronically in the help browser. Enjoy!
