I like the items that come with "quick guides" and the instruction manual. I gots me a new gadget an I wanna play with it NOW!! Flick through the short intro document to get an overall idea. Start playing with it and then it's either read through the instruction manual afterwards, or "I want to do X" and search for that particular thing.

If it's setting up something (like digital set top box for TV) I go through the manual step-by-step.

If it's constructing something (like furniture) I count out all the bits, layout all the tools and follow the instructions step-by-step. Sometimes, the instructions aren't helpful and you have to guess... :dry: ...but trial and error should NOT be part of this process! That's the whole point of creating and including the instructions! :angry:
