On quiet nights near the end of August, if you listen closely, you can hear the faint sound of students barely containing a panic attack. Yes, it's nearly time to head back to school.

To ease the stress, we here at The Fix offer a few tips and tools that may give students an academic advantage. Sharon Profis will walk you through some essential tips for setting up your MacBook. Donald Bell will show you how to pull exactly the info you need out of a Google search by using Boolean operators. And to help you quickly grasp a foreign language, Eric Franklin takes a look at Duolingo, an app that packs a semester's worth of studying into just a couple days.
