I remember when I took electronics in high school; one of the first things we learned was how to solder. Now this was a while ago (1976 actually) and I realize that not everyone learns how to solder today. If you fall into this category you might want to check out the soldering tutorial on the Best Electronics Soldering Technologies website. The site seems to be very comprehensive on the subject.
