Best advice? Home Depot can tell you everything you need to know. You need to be diligent in stringing a good level plumb line. Concrete needs to season, and you surely don't want to crete your blocks in on a wet or humid day. I favor quikcrete for setting in.

You need to first work on the foundation and the base with crushed rock, etc. before ever getting into working with the cement blocks. Make sure the area is level too.

When you dig the fooritng try to get it as level as possible. Be sure to use a string line to lay the blocks in an even row.

Cement blocks works should be done by a good worker as its contents should be absolutely correct while mixing water + cement. If its not correct chances are more to break soon. Cement should be of a brand company and not locals.
