No tricks, really.  If you're you gonig to do the fluid, plan on doing 
all four calipers.  Other than that, keep in mind that it takes about 
500 miles for the brake friction coefficient to really .. uh.. 
maximize.  In other words, your braking capabilities are reduced for 
awhile after you put on new pads and rotors.
