“Usability really just means making sure that something works well: that a person of average (or even below average) ability and experience can use the thing - whether it’s a web site, remote control, or revolving door - for its intended purpose without getting hopelessly frustrated.” - Don’t Make Me Think by Steve Krug

Pick up Steve’s book Don’t Make Me Think for a common sense approach to usability.

“There are no simple ‘right’ answers for most web design questions (at least not for the important ones). What works is good, integrated design that fills a need—carefully thought out, well executed, and tested.” – Don’t Make Me Think by Steve Krug

Be sure to pick up Steve’s book Don’t Make Me Think if you haven’t already.  It is a great overview of basic usability topics.
