I am relatively new to all of this water chemistry too...only 4 months into it. I started with the test strips and found it rather difficult to see the difference between the various shades of the same color...especially the reds, when trying to read pH. So, based upon the recommendations found in this forum, I purchased the Taylor test kit and there is no doubt as to what the levels are. This kit does require a little more money and time to use, but it is worth it to me. This way I know exactly what is going on.
Simply read the instructions and use it a few times - you will quickly get use to it.
Those around here that are most knowledgable recommend:
Taylor K-2006 test kit if you are using Chlorine as your sanitizer
Taylor K-2106 test kit if you are using Bromine as your sanitizer
Each kit measures it's own associated sanitizer + Alk, pH, Calcium Hardness
