If you're not mastering your songs yourself and instead are taking or sending your tracks to someone else to master, you'll make it easier on yourself and your mastering person if everything is well documented, and you'll save some money too. The biggest thing is to be prepared. If you're making a CD or vinyl record make sure that all of your song sequencing is complete before you get there. Be sure to include any FTP or shipping instructions to send your master to a replicator. Make sure to include any ISRC and UPC codes, we'll go over both in depth in some later movies.
Finally, make sure that all files are properly ID'd for easy identification, including alternative mixes especially if you're not there during the session. Having the right documentation can make your mastering session go a lot faster, which can be important especially when you're trying to make a release state, all it takes is a little bit of forethought and preparation.
