Having the proper equipment before attempting to assemble the PCB is strongly recommended.  At a minimum you will need:

  • Soldering Iron
  • Solder
  • Diagonal Cutters
  • Solder Sucker / Solder Wick
  • Wire strippers
  • Volt meter
  • Small needle-nose pliers
  • Something to hold the board (nice, but not necessary)

The Adafruit site has an excellent article and tutorial that is highly recommended for any newbies.
