1. Left foot OFF the pedal
2. Down collective (while saying the words 'Down collective')
3. Roll the throttle off (while saying the words 'close throttle')
4. Right pedal (while saying the words 'right pedal as needed')
5. Lift collective about an inch (while saying the words 'Check collective')
5. Announce something scatological (do not actually do anything scatological at this time)

While an actual engine-failure-inspired autorotation has to be done very quickly and without hesitation, the practice ones can be handled at a slightly slower pace to make sure you learn to do them quickly. Turns out that if you announce each step out loud it paces you properly, plus if you announce 'Down collective! Close throttle! Right pedal! Check collective! Piss your pants!', you feel much, much less need to actually dump core in any way.
