Boolean expression simplification

Logic Simplification Examples Using Boolean Rules

This is an excellent video which goes clearly through the individual steps of simplifying Boolean expressions. The video starts with a clear list of simplification rules and explains why they work. There are then two examples, complete with logic circuit diagrams, which are worked through line by line until they are fully simplified. This is probably the clearest explanation of Boolean simplification I have seen. (The video is a lot better than the screenshot makes it look!)
