Using MPU-6050

Hi all, I purchased this MPU050 accelerometer board (Amazon.com), but I really do not understand how to use it. I am very new to this and I have found plenty of very long complex examples but I am looking for an easy way to judt read in the raw values from the accelerometer and gyroscope. I am confused though even on which pins I need to connect it to. Can anybody offer some assistance or point me in the right direction? Thank you!!!

Read some of the links on this page:

and get back if still stuck.

I have the same sensor, and I've been trying to wrap my head around the code supplied at that page you're linking to, but I just can't do it :P.

Is there a way to shred away some of it and keep the most important stuff without all the functions which in turn contain functions which in turn contain functions and so on? The sketch works like a charm, but is there a way to do it simpler for beginners to I2C?
