A set of tutorials is included in the Chimera User's Guide.
The expanded "Getting Started" tutorial is more suitable for printing (more self-contained rather than hyperlinked) than the above.
Video tutorials and tutorials from past Chimera workshops are also available.
This page contains still more tutorials.
