Installation order of tiling a tub surround?

Hey all, couldn't find any other posts or pictures so does this sound right for tiling around a tub?
1. Stud
2. Insulation
3. 3 mill. vapor barrier
3a. make sure plastic overlaps tub flange
3b. use a small bead of silicone to attach the plastic to the flange
4.CBU
4a. end CBU 1/8" ABOVE the Tub Flange (????)
4b. make sure the CBU is flush with the tub flange
5. Tile
5a. make sure that at least 3/4 of the tile is stuck to the CBU.
5b. bottom row of tile should be 1/8" above the tub
5c. silicone bead this 1/8" gap (????)
Have I got it right?
Thank you, Robin

Close, You need to tape the joints, use latex modified thin set like a (Versbond)...Do Not Use MASTIC! Try to get 100% coverage on your tile.

Great! I wasn't sure if I was required to overlap the CBU over the tub flange. I thought I had read somewhere that if you made sure that 3/4 of the lower row of tile was on the CBU it'd be o.k. to end the CBU 1/8" ABOVE the tub flange. Wanted to make sure I had the steps down. Thanks! Robin
