Courtesy the MTFCA Forum, a listing of helpful tips. Though they apply to the Ford cars, they are useful for all makes:

My favorite one:

"If you have to tighten or loosen a fastener in a tight place or it's dark or you just can't quite identify if it's a Philip's head, slotted head, torx, hex (allen) or whatever; just push your fingertip onto the top of it for a moment and the impression will stay for a few seconds. That's long enough to see what kind of driver you need to bring over to the car from the tool box. You might not see the exact size of a torx or hex but it will put you in the ball park. " (Eric Sole)
