Learn to do it the right way, then learn to do it the easy way, otherwise you will never be able to do a hill start in a truck that has a foot E-brake, or any vehicle that doesn't have a working hand brake, I only use the hand brake for hill starts when I parallel park on a hill in a tight spot, otherwise it just takes to much time and requires you to put down your coffee/cell phone/leave the radio alone.
