Yes, that first one is a pretty good little guide I must admit.  I was
beginning to think that perhaps you were looking for a primer instead
(more of an instructional type of guide that one might use to teach a
topic).  That would certainly be very beneficial.  I suspect some are
out there but likely developed for a course that someone is teaching
therefore not something they want to share (intellectual property
where sharing might cause people to not bother taking their course).
