I have a rough idea about the schemes and I wanna know it deeper. . .

So my question is as below

How to choose schemes for different terms in fvschemes file ?

Is it based on
  1. Physics of the problem
  2. Grid
  3. Solver
Is there any good material regarding fvschemes usage in OpenFOAM ?

I've found Jasak's thesis to be a decent read on the topic.
