Are "how do I begin with XYZ" questions on topic here?

They have appeared before, but I'm not sure they're really suitable.

1 Answer 1


I find answers to such questions valuable for my own reading provided the person answering lists at least one reference I can go to for more information and explains why those references are relevant.

It is not always clear what one should be reading first to understand a new topic. It is also easy to give up in frustration. Hopefully a good answer helps avoid that frustration for someone.

I think such questions are on-topic and I would not vote to close them.
