The tutorial consists of 10 chapters. The first three chapters orient first time users: An Overview (emphasizing the power of the visual), Getting Started (emphasizing the groundwork needed before beginning the poster, to make the process more efficient), and Setting Up the Slide (sizing a PowerPoint slide as a poster).  The next five chapters are subject-specific: Text, Images, Graphs, Tables, and Backgrounds. The last two chapters are Little Screen-Big Poster (ways to maneuver on a small screen to create a large-format poster) and The Small Stuff (information about references, acknowledgements, and contact information).
