is it true that most of the time we just need 2 type of hardeners?
either (kinetic and thermal) or (explosive and EM)?

how do you know before the mission?
i mostly do gallente mission, so the most damage i will face will be thermal and kinetic?

I don't know how up to date the dmg profiles are in there but should give you idea.

Also most of the time there is a small icon on left side of mission location that will tell what you'll face (afaik). If there isn't any icon, most mission logs will tell what you'll face.

Or you could look from http://eve-survival.org/wikka.php?wakka=MissionReports

Two is on the low side. Normally 3-4 hardeners are good.

Mission guides in addition to eve-survival:
http://www.jovelabs.com/missions
http://eveinfo.com/missions/4

JoveLabs has a really good breakdown on damage by type. The two links above are slowly becoming out of date since CCP stopped including NPC ship stats in their database dump, but they're still current enough to extremely useful.

Think you missed a word in there.

Bottom line: most factions primarily deal two types of damage. Angles, mercs, and rogue drones are a bit different. If you're unsure about a mission, check it somewhere like eve-survival. After less time than you might think, though, you can pretty much figure it out based on the icon on the mission offer dialog box. And that's if you don't have it memorized just by mission name by then.
