The sampler goes hand in hand with the Skill Builder Series, and you’ll find links throughout the sampler instructions to appropriate Skill Builder posts. I strongly suggest you check out the Skill Builder Series here if you haven’t already.

As we progress through the sampler, I’ll add links to the steps below. At the end of three or four months years, you should have something like this:
