What is the best way to update your plugins?

I have style manager, back up buddy, email buddy and several others. Can I just copy and overwrite these through file zilla? Thanks

Yes, although using Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades Plugin is recommended because it automatically takes a backup of plugin/theme being updated.
