    Yes. Mount your components on the side without copper. On the copper side, you can solder to the pads. Then, use the excess leads or solid hook-up wire (e.g., 22 to 26 ga.) to make connections between components.

    I have some breadboarding hints at http://tinyurl.com/5foeou

    There are a couple pictures of a board I made and a list of tools and supplies.

    My experience with prototype boards has lead me to avoid the use of vector boards that have pads on one side only. I have found the pads tend to be easily delaminated unless the greatest care is used in the soldering process.
