I agree a lot with what @Sander Rossel[^] and trønderen - Professional Profile[^] had to say. I would add to that that a good high-level architectural diagram can do wonders for quickly learning how the code works. In Psychology, it's called a cognitive map. If a person has a map of the big picture, then it's very easy to fill in the details and know how it all goes together. If you only have the details (the codebase), then you have to create the big picture. If creating knowledge was easier than absorbing it, then school wouldn't exist.
