Connecting jumper cables is easy but on the other hand can be a dangerous if you do it wrong. Connect the black(negative/ground) cable first to car with the dead batter and then the red (positive). Then with the car giving the boost off, connect the black cable to the negative post and then the red. Crank the car and let it run a few minutes before attempting to start the car with the dead battery. Remove the cables, do not let them touch.
