    For a first time user I would probably go with a one pot mastic like Davco Supermastic. Any one-pot mastic are much the same, head to a tile shop and ask for their recommendation. If you had the mixing tool, I would use a powdered adhesive. The only one I use these days is Aba Powerstick Plus. I have used Mapei Keraflex and it is good too, but it is not white, which is a consideration for a new tiler if you are going to use a light colured/white grout. If you don't clean your grout lines scrupulously before grouting you'll end up with it looking mouldy from the start. So yeah, make sure it is a white adhesive. The two I recommended are white, both are easy to use. You might also get a bit more waste with the powdered one until you get your quantity estimation down pat.

    just don't go tiling an area that will get wet regularly with that mastic stuff else ya tiles wont stay on the wall for too long.
