How do I adjust my idle?

I failed the smog inspection today because my idle was 1030 RPM (spec is 950 +/-50 RPM). The tech (I use that term loosely) told me to go see my mechanic and have them adjust the idle and the timing before I return to run the smog test again.

As I really don't have the time to take the car to the shop for this (and I think it idles just frickin' fine), can I drop the idle a bit myself without screwing things up?

Thanks in advance.
