Elite:Dangerous is a difficult game to learn and master. And there are several videos and guides on the web. Below is a list of known guide containing mining, bounty hunting, tips and tricks etc. We tried to publish only these which are still on the track and don't contain old information.
First of all visit the official site to read the information provided by the developers. Also watch these official videos.
Then download this HUGE pdf file where are nicely written all the basics. It's one of the best manual written and has 104.1 MB so you can imagine that there is a lot of information.
Below are videos chosen by their importance and of course there will be more added as the game will evolve. Of course you can find for yourself many other tutorials on YouTube.

In Depth Mining guide is also necessary for all enthusiastic miners :-). There are better solutions to mine and you will get better the more you mine like catching the ore when it is flying from the asteroid but even this guide is nice to watch and learn from.
Weapons. Live or die. It's simple. Understand your weapons to become deadlier!
Of course the more you play the better you will get. From our own experience or friends the difference between the vets and newbies is HUGE. So don't be ashamed if you will not be able to get rich in a week or you die a lot in PvP. Elite: Dangerous is not something you can master in 5 days. Count with it :-).
One of the most famous player is Isinona and you can watch his latest video fighting vs a bounty hunter below. But we do recommend to watch all of his videos. They are awesome.
