Is there a guide somewhere that shows where to use 'niet'? I appear to have the problem of not always knowing where the niet should go. When I think it should come before a word, it should have been after. I am not getting it and I think I need to find a concise source on how to negate.

Most of the time you just put it after the verb. The same sentence in Dutch can have a lot of word orders, so sometimes it can be kind of hard. A helpful link is http://www.dutchgrammar.com/en/?n=WordOrder.45
