If you must do this yourself, I suggest that you get a guide from Chilton or Haynes at the auto parts store where you will be buying the new water pump. Since you will be draining the cooling system, now would be the time to change the thermostat and hoses if they haven't been touched in awhile. The guides will provide pictures for each step and fill in anything that I could miss. You will need to check with the parts counter and see if you need a paper gasket, RTV sealant or both and get a plastic scraper for taking off the old gasket. You will also need something to drain the old coolant into and buy new coolant to put back in. If you are taking the hoses out, get new clamps to ensure a tight fit. You might need a razor blade to cut the old ones off their fittings.
The basics of this procedure are that you will be removing the belts that drive the pump and other accessories; you will be removing both the fan and the fan shroud; you will remove the pump itself. While you are in there, it may be a good time to change the timing belt if it has one. Again, the guides will show you how to do this.

Water pump just went. What is the step by step proceedure in replacing it?

this will require replacing the timingbelt, as the waterpump is ran by this. Its also recommended that crank, cam seals, and thermostat are replaced as well. Heres a link to this procedure, if your vehicle is a 4cyl click on 5SFE engine if V6 click 1MZFE engine>>>

If your vehicle is a V6, please let me know, it is more difficult to time this if you are not familiar with this engine. Many V6 camrys come to me for previous timing work mistakes, mostly. Hopefully this helps
