electrical wiring

How do I install 2 wall switches to control one half of a wall plug. I want to be able to turn the wall plug off from either side of the room.

Use three way switches, bring power into the first three way, run xx-3 to the other three way switch, then run from the second switch to the half of the outlet you want switched. The unswitched side could powered from the power feed to the first switch.
