    Have you read it Chris? I guess it is always good to have a refresher as often there is so many distractions which can pull you away from the basics. Many pdf downloads add you to a mailing list but wholesaleforum is a reputable outlet so I would be confident downloading it from them as opposed to some youtube advertiser.
