How to learn Joseki?

Yesterday I started with first exercises about Joseki[1] of the http://www.321go.org curriculum…
(Rec.: See two examples of Josekis here: http://online-go.com/puzzle/211 and http://online-go.com/puzzle/212 )

Nick Sibicky’s teaching videos (see list in bottom) gave me the impulse as he mentioned that with the upgrade rank from DDK (10kyu) to SDK (9kyu) a player should study consequently some basic Josekis.

Here I like to share some sources to study Joseki with. If you have other sources, feel free to post them in following, pls.

Some books:
