What a tutorial usually includes is step-by-step help with practical examples. 
I'll be putting that on my todo list.

Very little in fact:

C-h t
C-h i
C-h f
C-h v
M-. → "requires running etags to record all the manuals nodes"
C-h p in a quote from the Emacs manual
M-x apropos
C-h a → the example Chassell gives produces 211 results

The Help chapter provides a "summary of help commands for accessing the 
built-in documentation." That summary does not group the information by topic 
but merely lists the commands in the alphabetical order of the keys.

Let me attach a patch that groups the commands by topic (tables) in that 
summary. I am not sure adding a @subsection is the best way to label such 
groups (tables) but I could not find a better solution.
