Get the bics with the .9mm lead, instead of the normal .7mm.  I got them by accident, but they actually helped me fill in bubbles faster :)

#2 or "HB" lead, which is the most common for mechanical pencils. that's what i used, and it was fine.

I use both a mechanical pencil and an old fashioned pencil. I use the fat head of the old-timey pencil for everything except drawing the diagram on the games. For that, I use a thin 0.5 mm mechanical pencil. There's nothing I hate worse than drawing a game setup in a tiny amount of space with a big fat wide lead pencil.
