A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When writing a research paper, it is always best to have a large flat surface to work on so that you can spread out your sources. The kitchen table works well for this. Also, book stands (like cookbook stands) are great for holding up large textbooks while reading or studying. That will save your neck and back from a lot of pain.
