This is pretty easy to do just follow these steps.

1.“Please note that you are about to install beta software. Always back up your data and files before installing beta versions of OS X. If you have multiple Macs, we recommend installing OS X Yosemite Beta on your secondary computer. Backing up files on a Mac is easy with Time Machine, the built-in backup utility in OS X.”

2. “Click on the “Download Beta Access Utility” button below. This will download the YosemiteBetaAccessUtility.dmg. Open the disk image, then double-click the package to run the installer and enroll your Mac for Beta Software updates.”
