I'm not sure what you are really asking, here, but my advice is go for it
yourself. If you are asking, I will guess you haven't sharpened in the past, but
it is nothing but practice. Use a fifty cent yardsale junker for practice first.
If you  need to set the teeth, sawsets are roughly a dime a dozen in many
regions (just picked up an unused  1950's-ish 42X, in box, for $1 at a yard sale
to supplement the other two-- 3?-- I have. This is the most expensive one. These
go for $10 or less on line and are a desirable user) if you don't have one.
