what color goes to what

If I'm going from breaker to recepticle to light to recepticle to recepticle to switch to another light... is there a diagram to tell me what to hook up to what as far as hot, neutral, and ground? I'm using 12-2 nb romex. on a 20 amp breaker?

If you are asking a question like this then there is probably other basic things you don't know. I suggest that you purchase a book or two on home wiring and read it. There is no way that we can tell you everything you need to know.

The black wire is the hot wire. The white wire is the neutral, or return. The bare wire is the ground. The hot wire always gets switched.
