You'll learn about different formats of charts, the attributes of planets (grahas), signs (rasis), houses (bhavas), then you learn to combine them and see what happens with planets when they find themselves in different signs and in different houses and when rules of houses find themselves in other houses.
You will learn the basics of different planetary comabinations (yogas) and the attributes of 27 Nakshatras - moon signs. There is a brief chapter on one of the sub-charts - Navamsa. You will also learn few ways of rectifying the time of birth.
At this point you are guided through a step-by-step process for analyzing the chart as a whole - looking at the strength of planets, signs, and aspects, which ones seem favorable, etc.
Then, you can have fun learning how to work with transits and predict events, as well as find out what may be the best timing to start or end specific projects (e.g. business, marriage, etc.)
You will find a chapter on remedies you can use to strengthen desirable planetary influences or reduce those which are unfavorable. Several remedies are listed such as performing yagyas, chanting mantras (no specific mantras are mentioned in this book, though), doing charitable work, chanting vedic hymns, using gems.
