Generally, the original C++ Qt documentation combined with knowledge of 
how the C++ translates into Python is sufficient. The PyQt documentation 
describes where it has had to deviate from the original C++ API because 
of Python restrictions (reserved keywords generally) or where a more 
"Pythonic" API has been provided.

I must admit that there is some guesswork and experimentation involved 
sometimes. I can't name anything specific off the top of my head because 
it's been a while since I last worked with PyQt.

You can find the original Qt documentation here: http://doc.trolltech.com/
