Security & Hacking: How to Crack WPA & WPA2

Good, though somewhat technical, article on cracking WiFi http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-howto/31914-how-to-crack-wpa-wpa2-2012

Though not mentioned in that article, related to strong passwords, I really think everyone should be using a good password keeper.

So the only password you need to remember is the one needed to unlock your password keeper, I would use Steve Gibson's advice for that password, blogged about here http://cliffsesportcorner.blogspot.com/2012/05/steve-gibsons-haystacks-needles.html

Then use random passwords, generated by the password keeper, for everything else.

There are many good password keepers out there, I like and recommend mSecure https://msevensoftware.com/

For free I believe Strip Lite is good, their website http://getstrip.com/ or iTunes.

Another free one I might suggest is KeePass, I have heard good things about it, and have a friend that uses it.
