Personal Study Notes: Introduction

I have developed an effective style of illustrated study notes as part of my study process. Some are reviews of my accumulated knowledge in the technicalities of my past projects and the software environments I have used. Others cover new areas of knowledge I had always intended to learn about.

My study notes include my accumulated knowledge on navigation software and my reference notes on Windows SDK. Others are concise personal revision notes produced during my readings of the following books:

  • The links are to extracts from my study notes. These notes contain no text from the actual books themselves. They are simply my own summaries of what I learned while reading them. They are heavily diagrammatic to help recap quickly after a spell of absence from direct involvement with the subject's fine detail.
