When it comes to circuit boards it is best that the situation is handled by a pro. It's not an easy thing and if not done properly things might get out of hand. But before anything goes into practice a solution to prevent any unwanted situations from happening is by creating a sketch, either the old fashioned way, or using an application such as DIYLC.

Can be used by anyone

This handy utility is designed to easily give you the possibility to create circuit board layouts, being able to include various components. You will mostly need the mouse, because everything you can use is shown in a specific tab, under a self explanatory icon, and can be dragged around the workspace and fitted according to your liking.
