soldering a double sided PCB

I recently ordered a five fish IC opamp based pre (SC-1). I believe that the PCB is double sided. I have soldering experience only with single sided PCBs. Can anyone tell me what differences I should expect when soldering components to a double sided PCB? Anything I should be aware of? Thanks.

just make nice solder-joints and take care of the solder is nicely sucked into the holes, thats all. As double sided PCBs are plated through there is no practical difference for you. Just produce nice solder menisci and avoid cold/dry soldered joints. - Hope this helps.

All the best

Yeah most of the time, by just soldering one side the solder will be sucked to the other, just add a little solder to the other side when you dont see a nice solder joint in it.
