i found this document to be both particularly helpful and extremely free.
the ideas are clearly expressed and the text thoughtfully written. it was
one component of the training given to internet technicians at a canadian
telco for which i once worked.
you can get through this document in 1-2 days, if you apply yourself. it
also includes several exercises, which i highly recommend doing (and more
than once). what is it again, adult learners tend to retain:
10% of what they read
20% of what they hear
30% of what they see
50% of what they see and hear
70% of what they talk over with others
80% of what they use and do in real life
95% of what they teach someone else to do
hope this helps.
