Well, don't overlook that Slackware comes with all packages vanilla, which means every software runs on Slackware "as it is" without any distributionspecific patches. If you want to know anything about Slackware take at first a look at the manpage. Every program runs exactly as described in the manpage.
With Arch and Gentoo this is not the case, they have many features of their own. I've used Gentoo for several years and I must say you're right, the have an excellent documentation which is worth reading even if one doesn't run Gentoo, same thing with Arch.
For Slackware I'd recommend to learn reading the manpages, find out what the "apropos" command does and learn to use "less" (which is the manpage-reader) efficiently. less has vi-keybindings and one can search within manpages using the / command as well as the ? comman (backward-search).
My experience is that with (for example) Gentoo, you can use their wiki like a cookbook, it is very well explained and will work as it is described. With Slackware there is the little difference that you should not only read how to achieve something but also understand
how it works. You'll get deeper insights with Slackware.
