I am a student in pure math. And I would like to learn LaTeX in the next 3 months. After searching in Quora and some other websites. I find a lot of experts saying that although it is hard to get start, getting used to use AuCtex is very benefitial and time saving. So now I find myself very passionate to try it. However, so far, I am not able to find any material which is readable for such an absolute beginner without any experience in lisp, editor and LaTeX. Now my question is: For a person without any knowledge of lisp, editor and LaTeX. How to get start of learning it in 3 months? It is acceptable for me to spend some time on learning programming and LaTeX. I am just asking about What exactly May I read or do. And help would be appreciate, thanks in advance!
I advise against learning LaTeX and Emacs from scratch together. In the beginning you'll never know where to look for the error. Emacs is a real beast. There are many possibilities to cause errors on the Emacs side, which seem at the first look to be errors of LaTeX and the other way round.
You'll have so many issues to tackle with: get forward and backward search work, spell checking, math, pdfTeX or LuaLaTeX?, encoding and so on.
Buy a book with an introduction into LaTeX, use the editor which the author recommends. As far as I know, there is no book that introduces into LaTeX and starts with Emacs + AucTeX. Guess why.
Saying this, I've been using Emacs for almost a decade and its a very good. And I always advise to use KOMA-script as a backbone for a document.
For them who are using linux and gnome here is a way to learn quick the emacs shortcuts : https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/378380/debian9-gnome-see-basic-emacs-commands-in-background-image
I will try to expand my answer for kde too...
If someone of you think that my answer is off-topic, don't hesitate to delete it. But I think may help some linux users and give a good idea to the rest of you...
I don't just use that method for emacs only but for basic latex commands too and it is very useful "trick".
