Default tool list for changing brake pads & rotors

Could someone please post a list of the tools one would need to replace brake pads and rotors on a Civic (mine is a 1997). I am a first-time DIYer and I will be doing this work (of course under the guidance of someone who is experienced). But, before we get started, I need to know which tools I have and which ones I will need to get on loan from the local auto parts store.

Assume I do not need to do a caliper rebuild at this time.

Many thanks in advance.

a quick run down is afew brake tools. spring stretcher, round circle tool to remove the pin and retainer, no idea what its called. and a Cclamp and abit of grease.
if you dont think you can do it yourself then take it to a pro brake shop and pay them!
you dont want to half@ss your brakes and get into a accident from it.
once again civic-less. but its better to have bills paid off than a extra vehicle.
till the next project civic i get- thank you and goodbye. i will return.

^supersize, thanks
