or from the home pages of the various TeX distributions. For finding the appropriate TeX distribution you can go e.g. to

Authors can use the documentations of the standard LaTeX 2e, the standard article document class and that of the amsmath package, because the Prepdmuc document class uses the same commands and environments.

These documentations can be found in the docs directory of the TeX distributions and on any of the CTAN servers, e.g.
