All of your settings, files in your /home directory and personal software will be preserved.

It is recommended, however, to make a backup beforehand in case the update renders your operating system inoperable. The chance of this happening shouldn't be big.

As for tips, don't touch your computer while its updating. It could mess things up. – Joren Oct 31 '13 at 17:35
