I just starting to get into the need for multi-pass compositing. Sometimes I use AE at work or DF+ depending on my need. But I have a simple question about the layers for the different passes. Sorry for asking such a simple question :)

-Which layers do you find are the best to export? (with either Render Buffer export or EXR)

-whats the best layer order? In Photoshop, AE or DF+

-what layer modes do I use?

I've been playing around with a few test renders and I can't seem to get surfaces to look like they do with the standard LW renderer output.

Or can you point me in the direction of a good tutorial?

i've found this to be helpful in a dictionary sort of way. it presents almost all possible options for you to pick and choose accordingly. hope this helps!
