Emacs Tutorial - Beginners Mandatory

Emacs ships with a tutorial. Just type `C-h t`. It teaches you all the essentials you need to know for starting emacs.

Books

  • Learning GNU Emacs, 2nd Edition by Debra Cameron, Bill Rosenblatt, Eric S. Raymond

Much better than the current, 3rd edition. The first half of the book walks you through the fundamental steps, as a tutorial.

Can be obtained from O'Reilly http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9781565921528.do

Useful Extensions

Before you install a lot of extensions, explore your Emacs distribution! Try 'C-h p' (find-emacs-packages) to browse the available packages by category.
