Solder: Only buy .032 or thinner solder. Don't use any thicker solder, even if your paid to use it: You can't control the amount applied-not even a well-skilled professional could. Install resistotors first. This is for two reasons: First: small parts are installed first because you can't get your fingers in between big parts, second: Resistors conduct electricity, and dissapate any electro-static charge on the PCB. Next, Diodes, then caps, then transistors ( labeled "Q"s) Always last, is the IC"s.
