Visual learning

Sometimes a simple visual makes an abstract concept more understandable.  I find more and more that I like watching short webcasts about new concepts instead of just reading prose about them.

If you haven't tried it, check out Dimecasts for a collection of just that kind of presentation.  I find it great to not only see code, but also to hear why it is being written that particular way. 

Here's one I just ran across that explains pointers succinctly and clearly.
