Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been using Latex more and more on these boards, and I'd like to use it for my Physics notes that I type. I've been using Microsoft Excel but it can get very messy.

I've downloaded the complete verson of MikTex 2.8 (I used the Net Installer) and I also have GhostScript 8.64 and TexNicCentre, but I've got no idea how to use them. I can't even create a simple document. I have absolutely no idea how to get started, and I can't find any guides on the very basics.

I've got a manual off the MikTex website, but I'm still completely lost.

At the moment I'm just using an online Latex Equation Editor, saving my equations as GIF images and inserting them into Excel, where they get blurred for some reason.

Does anyone know of any guides to help absolute beginners in creating "beautiful documents" in MikTex?

Thanks
