YouTube: How to draw a schematic diagram (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMIEZwaybWI)

If you are new to electronics please watch that video.

Knowing these conventions do help everybody to quickly understand your problem if you draw your schematic the right way.

And... frequently help yourself to find the solution to your own problem. :)

 Meesoft Diagram Designer (http://meesoft.com/DiagramDesigner/) is a very easy application to use for drawing simple circuit diagrams.

You need to download and install whichever templates you want to use. 
In the image you can see I've used the "Electronic Symbols 2" template.

Just drag and drop symbols onto the page and join with lines.


For more sophisticated circuits and diagrams you need a more powerful package like Eagle.

The point was not whitch tool to use, but to learn the usual conventions on how to place the symbols to make a diagram easy to understand.
