There were some people last night wanting to learn more about how to look at logs.
Here are two great sources I found to help you analyze the logs that are being posted to help you figure out how to improve.

First, a thread on icy-veins by a big-time warlock theory crafter and mythic raider whom I really trust.

Next, a twitch broadcaster and mythic raider (and old school raider with a corrupted Ashbringer!) who did a live video on how to look at logs. Note: these are pretty long and he was answering questions when he did it. First video is about 1.5 hours and second is 1 hour.

Part One (Skip to about 18 min in)
Part Two

Filthy gnome sympathizer.

http://simulationcraft.org/ is another tool that you can download to evaluate yourself.

This runs patchwerk style simulations on everyone, and can give you a rough estimate of where you should be at with your current gear. While not entirely accurate due to the liklehood of having a "perfect" scenario where nothing goes wrong and maximum uptime, it should help you ballpark your performance. While it won't help you actually play the game, if your actual results are drastically different from the simulated results, it may be beneficial to take a step backwards to reevaluate your rotations, macro's, UI etc.

This is also more accurate with trinkets and proc information, sites like Mr. Robot give laughable results for those types of things.

Mayo joked about pure dps classes having different gear sets yesterday, but its true. Changing specs and changing gear on a boss to boss basis can help drastically.
