you can do it 2 ways:
1. depress clutch
2. put in neutral
3. blip the gas
4. put in gear
5. undepress clutch

the other way which saves ur synchro's
1. depress clutch
2. put in neutral
3. undepress clutch
4. blip the gas
5. depress clutch
6. put in gear
7. undepress the clutch

both ways have to be executed (after practice) within a fraction of a second. it might take u 5 seconds the first few-100 times, but eventually u'll get it, and will become automatic.

be safe, keep an eye on the road and dont lose ur attention on other cars when u practice
