    You have to try to box it all up - make it look boxy. Look for significant features like, what are the components in there (all lightbulbs and a battery, so there's no other components to get mixed up with), does the wire split into 2 (becoming paralell), or are some components one after the other (in series).

    Hmm... so that looks somewhat like the picture. Let's simplify it. If some wires meet together at different points down the line, but still meet together, lets just show them meeting together. In the diagram, you don't concern yourself with wire length.

    Oo... I forgot the dots to show wires connect. Please imagine them for me :P

    Same thing, but I drew the parallel components a little differently. Some people like it that way.|dw:1349155729182:dw|

    Anyway, you can see how it looks like B again! I hope this has helped!
