98 that light switch

Forget what I said about using a light switch to find a stud - chances are, a light sitch will be mounted on a king stud, which is not necessarily 16" away from any other stud.

However, an outlet in the middle of a wall is still a viable way to find a stud.

Also, you can measure 16" from a corner where two walls meet - but depending on the dimensions of the room and at which end the wall "starts", the remaining studs may not be 16" from the corner (the centers will be 15.25" from ONE of the corners, but you won't know which one.)
