Wiring a Switch for a Light Fixture

Question: I got my incoming power romex 14/2c, and two other 14/2c coming into my octagon box which is for a bed lamp. One 14/2c goes to the next bed lamp, the third 14/2c goes to my device box, a 2 gang switch which is controlling a fluorescent fixture. How should I wire this up? Is a switch leg involved? Or do I just match the black to black conductors together and white to white conductors together in the octagon box?
