Re: how to get the table

A good introductory book is

"The Beginners Guide to Mathematica, Version 4".

By Glynn and Gray.

Don't be distracted by the Version;
There are no so big changes between 4 and 5 that a newbie could see.

In fact a great many books were written for version 3 (which was like
a really
revolution comparing with version 2 for example), that still deserve
the money
fpr purchasing.

Another book I strongly suggest is

"Introduction to Programming with Mathematica"

3rd Edition by Gaylord et al.

My last suggestion (for now of course!) is the Shaum's Outline of
Mathematica.
It covers many topics of Calculus, Algebra etc with Mathematica
applications.
In fact it is like doing mathematics with Mathematica!

I think this is enough for begining.

There is also a new book with the title
"A Beginners Guide to Mathematica"
by McMahon and Topa.
I don't own this book but looking in it some time
ago in a book store I find it quite good.

Don't forget that you have also the well informative Help Browser
which you should always consult for the built in function you
search for.

Also read as much as possible the Mathematica Book from
the online browser. Especially the first two chapters. The third
chapter is also of worth reading but since it connects Mathematica
with advanced Mathematics you should concentrate on what area
of mathematics you are interested in.

Here are a few more advice.

Suppose you are interested in the function Integrate.
To access information you could try

??Integrate

or write

Integrate and press F1.

The following command is of interest.

FrontEndExecute[{HelpBrowserLookup["MainBook","FunctionName"]}]

where in place of FunctionName you put your built in symbol you want
to find information.

Stay in tuned with the forum for more information.

Lastly, the following links are of interest.
