Hello fellow ATS members and ATS message board users,
I am on a continuous quest for knowledge. I am constantly searching the internet for valuable resources and informational downloads. This topic is intended to be a collection of the wealth of information that I have found. It is the culmination of years of research and hours of work to compile it here in one handy place for you all to learn from and enjoy. For those of you familiar with my original "Quest for Knowledge" thread (http://atshq.org/boards/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2112), be prepared to be blown away!

I want to keep this thread clean, and only full of informational posts. If you have comments, corrections or suggestions of sites or papers to add, please PM me directly and I will update my post.

Send me a PM here:
http://atshq.org/boards/ucp.php?i=pm&mode=compose&u=12

There is much more out there, I've tried to include only the best information and the sites I have found to be the most useful/helpful.

If you wish to make a comment or provide feedback, you can also do it here:

Thank You
