TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Like a semi-detailed user manual for LaTeX commands (\newtheorem, etc).

I'd start with The not so short guide to LaTeX, and then have a look at

Which manuals are on your "TeX Reference" shelf?

One document that deserves to be better known is the LaTeX2e Reference Manual.

I just quickly reviewed it and I will add this to my short list of 'best' references for my students. –  R. Schumacher Mar 14 '12 at 20:53
    
It’s BTW part of MiKTeX and TeXLive! –  Speravir Mar 14 '12 at 23:19
    
texdoc latex2e at the command prompt will lead directly to the pdf of LaTeX reference manual both in miktex and texlive distro –  texenthusiast Nov 29 '12 at 7:36

I have my students use The LateX Wikibook http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX. It is a required class for freshman math majors. This is the second year it has been the textbook.
