Things you need to do before starting a first grow:

(everyone else add on things I missed)

The single most important thing is a grow guide. many online. MarPassion has one.
A grow guide should be read over and over and over. I personally have hundreds of links catagorized on my CPU and two softcover books on my night stand. Not a single day goes by I don't find out something new. no matter how minor.

The second is determining your grow area and budget. What do you wish to acheive and what is your goal. This is critical. if you want a 1/4 lb. every two months then you have to make many preperations and you budget went up. If you want to just grow a plant to see if you can do it, then thats a different scenerio.

The third. Security. Odor control, are you willing to take the risk. This is crucial. If you have loose lips and do not have the capability to ensure that the grow is secure and private then it is not advisable to grow.

The fourth Read the grow guide again. Start with your plan. don't start a sprout until you have a plan and everything is set-up. O'wise you'll be rushing and do it half-assed. It is good to post your plan in detail so that it may be reviewed by experienced growers that might forsee a problem that a first timer might not see.

Want to add one thing that rarely see mentioned. Smoke alarms and a fire extinguuisher is a must. Its worth 20 bucks to me to have these items by my HPS.

So never forget Smoke alarm and fire extinguisher. ;)

I would suggest examining the style of grow you choose to see if it fits your schedule

do you want to spend 15 minutes every day or 3 hours 1x per week

the grow style you choose will determine how your time is spent

IMO read read read invest right the first time do not start off like 250 watt grow that is wasting your time and money as you get better trust me you will want to yield more n more and in order to do this you need min 600 watt and up lighting source anything lower is really childs play.
Cooling in order to grow properly you need proper room temps in many cases rooms are to hot ,,,,
things you should know replacing yearly bulbs and reflectors should be changed out yearly as you will lose 5 - 10 percent annually in yield
Cool your room not your bulb meaning stay away from cool tube reflector and glass set ups by cooling your bulb you lose 10 percent easily when you cool the bulb your really cooling the arc causing voltage drop So actually your dimming the light so keep in mind open reflector is best having glass and cooling the bulb you automatically lose close to 25 percent which is huge 3 grows you lost 75 percent , and that is alot
