\"Nasilsin?\" means; \"How do you do?\" and \"Neler yapiyorsun?\" means; \"What have you been doing?\"
Or you can use \"Nasil gidiyor?\" (more informal) and it means \"How is it going?\"
BUT IF IT IS ONLY HOW TRICKS (NOT HOW\'S TRICKS) THEN YOU CAN USE; \"Isin sirlari\"
I could give more detail or examples if you have given the context. Anyway, hope this helps :o)

or you can use; \"birseyi/isi yapma yolları/metodları\" which means \"ways and methods of doing sth\" for HOW TRICKS.
