A good hand held wire crimper/cutter/stripper tool is very helpful.

The crimping tool that malc has posted works very well but you still will need a stripping tool to remove the outer insulation and not cut the inner core.

A very liberal use of a lubricant (usually silicone grease although regular oil works as well) is needed to "slide" the boot back over the crimped terminal.
Try Armorall,works slick!
