Mind Maps!

I have a thing for mind maps (or concept maps). Due to a bout of influenza that laid me low for 3 weeks years ago during law school I had to sit a closed book contract exam 5 months after I studied the subject. Mind maps got me through. I am progressively adding some recent mind maps (mostly focused on education) to a new page.
