Help me on the selection of density functional and basis sets for transition metal compunds.



I want to do some calculations on the transition metal compounds(in solid
 state) using DFT scheme. I am troubled by the selection of the density
 functional and basis sets. If you have any idea, would you please let me
 share your experience.
 Thank you in advance.
