My table of contents is around 1 and 2/3 pages long, but the first page ends with

6.8 The Forecast . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54

7 Quality Control 57

7.1 Process Control . . . . . . . . . . . . . 57

But I would like the

7 Quality Control

to start at the top of the second page to keep all of section 7 together, is there any way to do this?

You can add a \newpage via \addtocontents right before the seventh chapter:

\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\newpage}
\chapter{Quality Control}

    Doing this only when the document is in "really final, no more changes, definitely" form. ;-) – egreg Mar 23 '13 at 23:03

    At first this didn't work for some reason, then I realised it was a chapter and I am using sections. After that it didn't work either, so I placed the \chapter{Q... next to the ..ect\newpage} and it worked, so thanks! :) – DannyBland Mar 23 '13 at 23:06

    @DannyBland -- Also, keep in mind that a LaTeX has to be recompiled twice in order for the effects of commands such as \addtocontents{toc}{...} fully show up. – Mico Mar 24 '13 at 2:40
