    Fellow BS members:

    I would put 40% of my overall novice training solely on information found on boards similar to this one, and other resources that are freely available to the public on the internet. I'd like to start a thread for a centralized location to keep a good list of solid information for people to read, whether it be when they're first starting, or advanced and would like some good reading material. Maybe with some help from a certain forum owner we can make this a sticky. :D

    (Open to suggestions/critiques) Please post below links to the following:
    Training / Reference articles and videos that are FREE, and do NOT require you to sign up to view. I will try to keep the first post updated with your links. When you post a suggestion, please try to have a brief description of what the link contains for search purposes.

    Also, if you wish to have a discussion about the links posted, please start a new thread to keep this thread as efficient and informative as humanly possible.
