I'm relatively new to soldering as well.  I've found Sparkfun's Soldering 101 tutorial (http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/213) to be quite helpful.  Unfortunately, I still have a hard time working on smaller components because minor shaking in my hands is amplified along the length of the iron.  Has anyone else had similar experiences or have suggestions for dealing with this type of problem?

Soldering equipment and material is but just one part of successful soldering. The other is proper technique which one learns with experience and practice. Remember you have to heat up the pan before you stick the meat in. That also applies to other activities.

One of those gel handrest for keyboards with a little someting to lit it up a bit would help ?

Oh, that's a good idea. I think that most of the shaking comes from my fingers, but that could probably help. I'll have to give it a try.
