Use an overhand grip (knuckles facing you) if you are doing the Presidential Fitness Test (some other tests and states allow different ways)

Start with a long hang-arms fully extended
Don't swing your legs
Chin only needs to go to where it is even with the bar-don't wrap it over the top of the bar
