Easy if you folow Sheldon Brown or Park Tool instructions, and dont hurry. However if the wheel is out of true because of a hit on pothole or curb, you may never be able to get it true. Then use this wheel for practice and buy another one. The original wheel was probably seriously under tensioned, so when you get it reasonably true, take it to a bike shop and ask them to measure the spoke tension, which should be around 100 kg. If you buy a new wheel, get the shop to measure the tension before you take it home.
