An introduction to recent advances in computing effective superpotentials of four dimensional SUSY gauge theories coupled to matter is presented. The correspondence with matrix models and two proofs of this are discussed and a novel derivation of the Veneziano-Yankielowicz superpotential for a pure gauge theory is given using the generalized Konishi anomaly. Based on a talk given at the School on Sub-Nuclear Physics, Erice, Sicily, September 2003.
