How do I read a circuit diagram? Answered

I've been learning about robots and electronics for a while and can almost duplicate a circuit board if i see a regular picture of it, but I still have no idea how to read a daigram for a circuit.Anyone know of any legends that show how, or can tell me what all of the things stand for?

Once you know what all the components on a circuit are, have a look at how they might interact with each other. Try to identify groups of components which work together to perform a task, such as an amplifier. The main thing about reading circuit diagrams is experience. The more you do it, then the more you will recognise patterns.
