Tutorials and how to notes in PDF

Over the last few years I have been writing tutorials to help me understand what I am learning. I am someone who learns best by verbalising what I am doing.

These documents are not professionally done or professionally produced, they are my notes, pics and sketches to assist my learning. If they help you in your learning process, please let me know.
