Instructions needed on putting sweater pieces together

Can anyone guide me to or instruc me on what stitch and how to put the pieces together on a sweater (sleeves and sides)?:knitting:

Here is link to an online knitting book from StudioKnits that has a lot of information. Chapters 17-23 I think are about seaming. Lots of good pictures and text to describe what to do and when to use the different techniques. LINK
