Light Fixture

Hello Everyone. I removed a fan from my spare bedroom and went out and bought a simple light fixture from Home Depot. It is a two light fixture. I want to be sure before I connect the wires that they are proper. There is a white and a black and a ground coming out of the ceiling. I understand the ground. Out of the fixture are two sets of wires. A white and black wire set on one side and the same thing on the other. The instructions says all white goes to white and all black go to black but the picture you see looks like they have a set of white/black to white and a set of white/black to black. Which way is correct? Thanks for any help and yes I will be careful with this. Thanks again.

All blacks go together and all whites go together. The reason there is two of each on those lights is because the manufactuer brought each set out from the lights.
