The IDEA Tutorial contains a section called "Getting Started Tutorial" that is designed to provide an overview of IDEA that will lead users through the process of importing files and performing several analytical functions. Because IDEA offers extensive functionality, this guide can only expose users to a small portion of IDEA's functionality.
The IDEA Tutorial can be found in a PDF by accessing the Start menu. Select “All Programs,” select the “IDEA” folder, then select the “Documentation” folder.
The data files for the exercises can be found in:
