    It depends what level you are at but I found many sites on google when I typed in curve sketching. The most important aspect of curve sketching is finding the stationary points and analysing them. This involves some calculus. Another aspect is being able to recognise a familiar curve that has been translated or scaled, then finally identifying asymptotes.
