#### Beginner Resources
Here are some basic resources. I recommend the either the [YouTube playlist](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1D4EAB31D3EBC449) or [A step-by-step LATEX tutorial](http://www.latex-tutorial.com/tutorials/) as a starting point depending on your preferred style of learning.

#### Online Tools
Here are some online tools that I occasionally use.
- [Overleaf](https://www.overleaf.com/) — Online, collaborative LaTeX editor (**my preferred online option**)

- [CodeCogs](http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php) — Online LaTeX equation editor
- [LaTeX Table Generator](http://www.tablesgenerator.com/) — Better than doing it manually although I still prefer LyX
- [JabRef](http://sourceforge.net/projects/jabref/files/jabref/) is a reference management software that uses BibTeX as its native format. JabRef provides an easy-to-use interface for editing BibTeX files and for managing and searching BibTeX files.

- [Texmaker](http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/) is a free, modern, and cross-platform LaTeX editor that integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX, in just one application.
- [LyX](http://www.lyx.org/) is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).
