Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 24,000;

For daily driving, is it necessary to double-clutch? Opinions about this sequence for downshifting:1. Clutch in2. Bring up revs to match engine speed in next lower gear with road speed.4. Move gear lever to next lower gear.3. Clutch outIf this can be done smoothly, would this be just as good in saving transmission clutch wear as double-clutching without using the clutch out - blipping sequence??
