We're now about to get started with part one of the guided tour for beginners. Part one focuses on the definitions of group, subgroup, trivial group and Abelian group. The focus here is on definition understanding.

When you read the many equivalent definitions of group, try to prove that the definitions are equivalent, and mull the definitions over in your mind. The definition pages also contain some examples; go over those examples as well. However, the focus right now is not on the problem-solving aspect, or on how to manipulate the definition well: we'll return with that focus in part two.
