I have a desk drawer shimmed open w/a trimmed shelf-board sitting on top of it. The pad covers it up and tucks around the back-end. That way the mouse is directly to my right, at arm level--I don't have to reach towards the desk to use it. I find that spares me a good amount of repetitive stress. My mouse hand and shoulder gets much less tired at home than at work.
And the best mouse ever is still the original Logitech MX1000 laser. I have a small hoard of them and still buy them from the 'Bay when I see them.
A useful mac utility is TextExpander (you can do the same thing with AutoHotKey on Windows, but it's more complicated.) You predefine abbreviations and it will expand them into words/phrases. For instance you could set trt'fzr to expand to tortfeasor. The only bugaboo is becoming too reliant on it such that it hurts your exam performance. It may also prevent you from learning difficult spellings, if you make it into a crutch.
This is all false.
