One can get a good idea about how DFDs work after 15 minutes of persuing (this
is a two page tutorial). Useful for familiarity purposes.

Technical Remarks:

There are quite a few other turtorials on this site as well, covering Booch
Diagrams ERDs (Entity Relationship Diagrams) to Yourdon & Coad diagrams.

I spent about 15 minutes reviewing the various tutorials/descriptions on the
various types of diagrams.

It's a good high level overview and useful for users that have little or no
experience with diagramming.
