Flash photography and using an ND filter

There are many articles on using a flash for both indoor and outdoor photography with an ND filter.

But what I find missing are the beginning steps.

For example, shooting in manual set the desired aperture and see what the camera meters for shutter speed using the lowest ISO setting.

Determine at what shutter speed you want and then select the ND filter.

OR

Mount the ND filter, set your desired aperture, ISO and then lower your shutter speed. Take a test shot and adjust your shutter accordingly.

Or is their a specific tutorial on what comes first? Meter reading without ND filter or just mount ND filter and take some test shots and then adjust your shutter?
Thanks

Richard
