you will need a DOT3 brake fluid and an extra person.........(caution: do not get brake cleaner on your paint, very bad)
k, put the car on jack stands or what ever you have, let the person in the car step on the brakes a couple times and then hold the brake pedal to the floor...take a 7/16 wrench and on the passenger side front brake, crack the little bleeder, let it run till either the brake pedal goes to the floor or it is just fluid with no air bubbles.....check brake fluid level, fill if needed......now samething, step on pedal a couple times and hold to the floor, now to the passenger side rear brake, same way...........check brake fluid..........step on brakes, hold to floor, now do the driverside rear brake.........check fluid...........step on brakes, hold to floor, now do the driverside front brake...........top off your brake fluid resevoir and you are done...................hotwheels

I like to do the passenger side rear tire first, then drivers rear, then passenger front, then drivers front, but wyominghotwheel described it pretty well. If you have access to speed bleeder equipment it's a piece of cake.
ONE PERSON SYSTEM TAKES THE WORK OUT OF BRAKE BLEEDING
Bleeding your brake or clutch line has never been easier or simpler! Revolutionary double-patented Speed Bleeder replaces the original bleeder valve in your caliper/wheel cylinder with a spring-loaded one-way ball and check valve design. This unique design opens to allow the old fluid and air out, then closes automatically between pumps to prevent the old fluid and air from re-entering the line. It's a real time saver!
I dont think using a pump would affect things any differently, so basically, First:, MAKE SURE YOU WORK FROM THE FARTHEST WHEEL fron the MC in to the closest to the master cylinder. (I.e., back passenger, to back driver, front passender and finally front driver. ) Bleed it until your getting just fluid, no bubbles.
If you follow that pattern and make sure that you keep checking the MC fluid level so you dont suck any air into the sys you sould be ok. Eventually the air bubbles should disappear, then move on to the next wheel. BTW, if you do find yourself "sucking air" you have to start over again. Sorry.
