drywall steps?

probably a stupid question, but if redrywalling a bathroom that I am stripping down to the studs and totally renovating, should I install drywall on the ceiling first, then do the walls, or walls first then ceiling? or does it matter?? What is standard practice?

thanks
Matthew

P.S. if it matters the bathroom is 60" x 85" and runs parralel to the joists

Ceiling first, then walls. Walls will give additional vertical support to the ceiling edges.

Not to mention it's almost impossible to hit that ceiling joist with a nail or screw if the wall panel is already there.

I am amused by the titles, sometimes. I jumped on this one, because I thought Ontario was going to build "sheetrock steps"!
