DAEA tuning
Book for sale, scroll down
Or, if you are using GDAE tuning, you could look for a fiddle or mandolin chord chart. Mandolin charts are easy to find.

Sorcha mentions two possibilities, but "standard" mandola tuning would be C-G-D-A. You can pretend it's a mandolin for the purpose of playing chords and tunes, but when you try to play with other people you will be in the wrong key.

Enhhhh, relax and enjoy it. I do.

If you can play mandolin or fiddle, you will find it a challenging extension of what you can already do to learn to play tunes in the keys that they are not designed for. EG if the tune is in D, say St Anne's Reel, you have to learn it in "A" fingering. Not too hard. Tunes in A, you play in E (Hard). Tunes in G are good, you play them in D.

Learn the alto clef! Viola tutorials will show you how to get around on the mandola. Viola/mandola duets are wonderful, by the way.

I use a tenor banjo tuning on my mandola (CGDA) and there are books available for those. Good luck!
