Techniques and current limitations for gaining constraints on the mass and spin of stellar scale black holes in accreting binary systems are summarized. These efforts include the interpretations of X-ray spectra and the properties of X-ray QPOs. Further progress is dependent on efforts to resolve our current uncertainties related to accretion geometry for the various X-ray spectral states of black hole binaries. These investigations require regular monitoring and high-throughput instrumentation with significant bandwidth.
