Whichever track you decide to use, plan out any work FIRST!  Take your time doing this and it will pay off well. Also; I usually don't hear about lateral checking too much.  Lateral here means checking across the width of the track-not the gauge.  I have watched with bemusement, trains wriggling down the track like a hula danceer (ON MY OWN WORK AS WELL...)  Alwys check youre work this with a level.  There are few things worse in this hobby than lousy trackwork; espically if it causes a thousand dollar brass import to hit the deck-hard...  Learn to use that level and/or laser lights well, and yo u will never be sorry.  Proficiency in everyday (shop) math is also a good thing.
