I am not from the USA but this hint is one of my favorite;

When I want to change icons on a number of folders or files I choose all that I want, and it can be a large number. In Finder I go to File and then Get Info. BEFORE I press Get Info I press the CTRL key and i will see Get Summary Info and only one Info window will open. From there I change the icon and all the icons will change. I have done this on up to 90 files/folders and it takes a while but it sure saves from doing it one by one.

Or command-option-I instead of just command-I.
Okay, this will result in a modal window and not in a window you can close by command-W but from there you can select the next files where you want to change the icons without closing the window. Close the window by another command-option-I
