This chapter describes some of the key concepts you need to understand in order to effectively use JRaceman.

You should read the Definitions section to make sure you understand the terminology used by Jraceman; this is essential because JRaceman uses these terms extensively.

You may defer reading the other sections in this chapter until later; they present a few more concepts and are useful for gaining a better understanding of how JRaceman works, but are not essential for your initial use of JRaceman.
