Test Objects for Test Classes with multiple test methods

I have a fairly big class that I'm testing that requires a lot of data to be created and tested on.


Right now I have multiple methods in my test class, that tests separate portions of the class.


Do I need to create test objects within each method? Or can I have all my test objects created in my first test method and have them exist throughout the test class?


What are best practices for handling test object creation?
