How about dealing with hills?

I'm new to MT and my car is due in a month and a half. There is a major hill outside of my office that I will be dealing with every day as I pull out of the parking lot.

My concern is the proper form for dealing with this. I've seen discussions where people talk about burning out your clutch on a hill. I noticed a bit of a burning clutch smell after I practiced on this hill with a friend's car (after 2 stalls).

Can someone weigh in on exactly what you should be doing when stopped in the middle of a steep hill and how best to start (e.g., clutch in or out with the car in neutral, etc.)? TIA
