It is expected that you have read the previous sections, and have some experience with basic construct creation and programming. If you do not meet the expectations please correct this, it is doubtful that this will be very helpful to your practices otherwise.
This article is aimed at novices with some experience and low-intermediate psions and discusses the importance of, practical concerns regarding, and how to design constructs. It is only assumed that the reader can easily make very basic constructs and that they wish to make more complex ones.
