Doesn't anyone believe in going to the library to look at a manual? There is a difference between rear drum brakes and front disc brakes. If you didn't wait until the brakes are down to the steel backing plates, why would you need to replace the rotors? Even if they have normal wear they don't need to be replaced - they don't even need to be turned. Disc brakes are a piece of cake - use a big screwdriver to push the caliper pistons back (make sure you didn't add brake fluid as the level dropped because it may overflow when you push back the piston), take out a couple of bolts to pull off the caliper, knock out the retaining pins, pull out the old pads - put in the new pads... and 15 minutes later, you're done. Back drum brakes should be good for about 100K... they're a pain to change if you don't have the tools (worse case a visegrip works) and should cost three times as much, but everyone makes a big deal out of disc brakes and charges whatever they can get away with.
Very good advise above. On the disc, use ceramics (won't squeal, last longer) and do not lose the seemingly useless small V-shaped wire tension clips if they are included in the assembly.

This will greatly depend on what kind of brakes you have and which parts you are trying to replace. Do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have disc brakes, do you want to replace the calipers, pads, or rotors? If you have drum brakes, do you want to replace the drum, or the shoes?
everytime you change brakes you should have rotors turned by an automotive shop or store. They will tell you if they can be turned anymore and if not you will have to buy new ones.
