Moving your post to Gameplay Questions-- that's where the helpful folks hang out who want to help people with their questions.

That's a toughie! There are so many personal preferences that are involved.

Do you care about making rockets that are pretty? As cheap as possible? Recoverable? Huge? Tiny? Efficient? Long range? Lots of krew? Probes? Are you using mods? CommNet?

My rockets are ugly, cheap, recoverable, tiny, long range, single occupant rockets -- preferably with CommNet off.

My rockets are usually the opposite!  I like a good looking ship, tend to be overly expensive, High capacity, with range based on refueling stations along the way.  But I do try to recover as much as possible.  Usually only orbital insertion stages are lost.  

@Sethy Kerman, read a bunch of the tutorials we have here, watch some of the many many good videos people have posted.  Also try posting up some screen shots of the craft you have been building with their intended usage, and we can offer up some tips.

Start really small and then add parts to see what helps and what doesn't. Work your way up to big, fancy ones. That's how I learned. :)

For me pretty, recoverable, balancing efficiency with easy to use, and commnet on :)

@Norcalplanner is a man after my own heart. I build my rockets to be cheap, simple, and easy to fly.

Best,

@Sethy Kerman What is it you're trying to do?  What do you not feel clear on?  Do you feel comfortable using all the different diameter parts available?  Maybe posting some pictures would help - one of the sort of rocket you typically build now, and then one that you admire and wish you knew how to build well.
