What is the best partitioning and its sizes for SSD, to contain everything related to Mint 19.1

++ For a Laptop, 300GB HDD, 3GB Ram, USB2, with Win7.
++ To install Linux Mint 19.1, with a dual boot with Win7.
++ In the case of installing Linux Mint 19.1, on a 120GB SSD, mounted in a Caddy DVD.
++ The question is:-
What is the best partitioning and its sizes for this SSD, to contain everything related to Mint19.1 only?

Many thanks in advance

I would make a 512mb fat32 partition for the efi bootloader (incase you have a efi system) and a 115gb ext4 partition for root and home directorys.
