Music Theory QuickThink: 

-          vii°7/V chords should resolve to V of the key of the piece (or section)

-          vii°7/V chords contain two tendency tones

-          One tendency tone is the root of the chord (called a temporary leading tone of the key being tonicized)

-          The other tendency tone is the chordal 7th of the vii°7/V

-          Avoid doubling the temporary leading tone

-          The temporary leading tone resolves up by step

-          The chordal 7th resolves down by step

-          Use the previous rules for resolving chords

-          NOTE: do not double the 3rd of when resolving on the V chord, as that is the leading tone of the key

-          NOTE: The scale degrees involved in this chords are 7, 2, 4, 6 (of the key being tonicized), It is often good to resolve 4 down by step since it is a chordal seventh tendency tone of V7, but if it causes voice leading errors like parallel 5ths, it does not have to resolve down by step in this case.
