Have you ever tried to build the URL for a REST API service call and ended up confused and frustrated? The OData query syntax is well documented, it's just not that intuitive.

Step-by-step instructions can be found on my blog in the latest edition of my SharePoint Developer Quick Tips series as well as on the video below.
