Electrical wiring

Hello,

I am going from an outlet to a switch, up the wall into a drop ceiling using 12/2 wire to 3 different flourescent lights. I was thinking about putting two lights on one switch, and the other light on the other switch. My question is how do I wire it at the outlet, at the switches, and from the switches out?

Run the following 12/2 cables:
  • From the receptacle to the first switch.
  • From the first switch to the second switch.
  • From the first switch to the first light it controls.
  • From the first light it controls to the second light it controls.
  • From the second switch to the light it controls.
