Basic barbell routines

Here is a nice review of a number of basic and intermediate-level barbell routines:

Basic Barbell Programs Reviewed

It's a very good overview of:

Starting Strength
Stronglifts 5 x 5
5/3/1
Madcow intermediate 5×5
Texas Method

The only error I can find is in 5/3/1, where the author lists the days as 3 sets of 5, then 3 sets of 3, then a set each of 5, 3, and 1 or more. The last sets on each of these days is "or more."
