Does anyone have any tips for when to use which? I feel like most Spanish grammar is straightforward but this is something I cannot figure out to save my life. (Is "buen" even a word?)

Also, when do you use the word before the noun as opposed to after?

bien = well, bueno/a = good. some adjectives like bueno/a can be used ahead of the noun, but when the noun is masc and bueno is used you drop the o to make it buen. Tenga un buen dia.

I thought of 2 more that can precede the noun...

new = nuevo/a - this one retains the o in masculine (nuevo coche) new car

first = primero/a this one is like bueno where you drop the o (primer piso) first floor
