Default Patio help

Alright I'm in the process of building myself a patio, out of bricks and octagon concrete stones. I've tilled up the area for my patio and am about to dig it out, my question is how on earth do I get it level? Do I level it before I put the sand down? Do I have to rent one of those compacter things or can I just do it by stomping it down myself?

I know I'm supposed to take a level out there and do something with it. If I could see it done it would be so much easier but these online guides are driving me bonkers.

You'll do the final leveling with sand, but it's a good idea to get the grade pretty close before that.
