R.A.C.E.S. Tip of the Week

It is always good to have a work space to take notes on, paper, and a pencil. You may use a pen, but a pencil will make it easier to correct mistakes. If you will be taking your notes on a computer, use a laptop or tablet with a keyboard, as they have a battery to avoid the loss of work due to power outage. You could use a desktop computer, but if power is down be sure to have an alternate method to power your computer. I personally use the paper method, then transfer to computer later for a back up.
