Cracking for dummies: Softice beginners

As anyone here knows, Softice (by Numega, buy it or find it on the web, NEVER ASK for it, it's bad craketiquette :-) is THE debugger par excellence, yet many beginners have problems with this most gorgeous tool

Softice beginners will therefore be well advised to read the VERY GOOD document by fellow +cracker Mammon:
Mankind comes into the Ice Age
there you will find a COMPLETE 'how to use Softice' text with two VERY IMPORTANT exercises:
Debugging an existing application and Regaining Lost Access.
No beginner should be left alone with Softice without this mighty help!

Of course, if you are a total newbye, and cannot even INSTALL softice, you better have a look at siceinst.htm: The Ultimate Beginner - Session 1: SoftICE Install for Beginners, by i_magnus

Programming languages Tutorials and refs
Link to the programming languages tutorial that you may need (assembly, C, Pascal and even, gosh, visual basic!)
Link to every assembly language link or tutorial that you may need (assembly cuts, beware!)
+Sync's API reference
Well, +Sync's reference is a MUST for people seriously into reverse engineering, in order to download it, just press shift and click (api.hlp, 119.087)

If you are seeking where to publish for free:
Omar's list and Bram van Dartel's list
fravia's antispam advices and tricks
...of course there are many more pages and specific sections, some of them can be accessed only from particular points of entry... other will require (a little) ingenuity :-)
you'll find the access points and/or understand the (most simple) correct access techniques wandering around. It takes time (and a little work) to be a reverser, so don't worry and don't hurry.
