Newbie question re setting up

Two set-up questions: when you get to the fishing site with your 2-or-3-piece rod, do you assemble the rod first and then mount the reel, or the other way around, i.e., mount the reel first and then assemble the rod? Second, when you're assembling a 2-or-3-piece rod, what is the best way to make sure the guides are aligned? Do you sight down the rod like a gun barrel, or do you hold the rod vertically in front of you and look at the guides from top to bottom? Many thanks, Evans
