Migrate From Wordpress to Local and Back For Testing

I was curious what exact steps I have to take in order to migrate my current hosted wordpress site to a local testing site but with everything in tact. That is, the posts, pages, sidebar, plugins, themes, the works. Then I can use the local site for testing/development. Once that is done how does one then transfer the site from local back to the live site with everything in tact?


FYI I understand and know how to use XAMP in order to create a new wordpress local install. Just not sure how to migrate from the live site to local with everything included.
