Balancing Oxygens vs. Hydrogens

*When balancing redox reactions, is it necessary to balance the oxygen atoms before the hydrogen ones?

No, but it makes the process easier. Chances are, you have a H+ that can balance out the excess H created by balancing the O, but you won't have an O2 to balance out the excess H.
