Ways to mount components on a PCB

Hello; What ways do you use in order to mount components - resistors, reed switches, etc- into one PCB? Regards

I don't get it. Place components on a PCB? You insert the legs and bend them. Flip to the other side to solder and snip the legs off.

If you need the board to lay flat while soldering, start with low profile components first, like resistors, so that the board lays flat.

My first thought was “right side up, with the correct legs in the correct holes”. Since that seems so obvious, please explain why the obvious is not what you are looking for.

What do you mean "in what ways"? Do you mean what are some different techniques?
