Fitting new shifters and cables

My apologies if there's a really good guide I've missed. I've been going a bit mad buying bits from the classifieds lately and am about to get new or almost new shifters and front and rear mech and have ordered an xtr cable set. I don't need full instructions on what to do and am ok fitting and adjusting the mechs. I've not changed cables before. Are there any pearls of wisdom to bear in mind? Will I need anything other than comes with the cable kit? Are normal wire cutters ok for cutting inners? What should I use for the outers?

If all of this is answered somewhere else I apologise and please point me in the right direction.
