• Chances are you will eventually have to use $$\LaTeX$$ to typeset your documents, and learning to use it may take some practice. If you are not familiar with it, the sooner you start the better. It is possible to survive using Scientific Workplace, but it has limited capabilities and compatibility issues, and, in the long run, it can be a lot more time-consuming. If you feel extremely uncomfortable with mark-up languages, we recommend that you try LyX. Otherwise, you can install MikTex (for Windows) or TexLive (for Mac/Linux), and a free integrated user interface such as TexMaker. You will find plenty of LaTeX tutorials on Google. The LaTeX wiki is also a good reference. ShareLaTeX is an excellent solution to use LaTeX alone or with couathors without having to install any software on your computer, you only need a web browser!!
