I'll be first to admit my slap shot is garbage so I spent a lot of time working on my wrist shot and snap shot.
To start working on your wrist shot, the HowToHockey vid posted above is spot on. I want to stress 2 things that were said. First, start practicing with the puck about a foot behind your back leg and have your stick behind the puck angled over it. This will get you used to the motion you need to propel the shot. Think of it like pulling back on a bow and arrow. The next important part was keeping your bottom hand higher on the stick. This will allow for the fulcrum to be better placed and give you some nice torque.
After you get the feel for the shot, it will naturally start getting better and better. Keep your head up and keep your eyes where you want the puck to go.
