The procedures for constructing recommended sets of cross sections for electron scattering on molecules are described. Possible sources of errors in total and partial cross section measurements are discussed. Examples when the theory successfully supports and/or substitutes measurements are given. The target molecules discussed comprise CH4, C2H2, NF3, N2O, NO2 and H2O.
