Versioning Question

I am aware that ESRI has put up Versioning on their ArcGIS help online but is there that has PDF ?

What is a version?—ArcGIS Help | ArcGIS for Desktop 

But I'd like to get some tips from you that might be helpful to me. My supervisor wrote down the steps on how to do it. I want to understand it better and how it works.

They can be tutorial, brochure, video, etc...For the video, I'd like to have either subtitles or Closed-captioned.

One of the best explanations in brief I came across was in this link: Versioning 101 


I'll suggest going through all the ArcGIS Help resource for a sound understanding of the Topic: An overview of versioning—ArcGIS Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

I find the resource lists of links they publish for some of the classes are always good.  This one is for 

Which talks about geodatabases and there is a section on versioning.

There is a Implementing Versioned Workflows in a Multiuser Geodatabase Instructor Led class that may benefit you as well.

And the class resource for that

RE are actually resource lists for many of the classes....look at the documents in this training space to see others.
