Realtime Coach is offering a free trial starting April 11th.  They have speeds for everyone.  It's a great way to work through test anxiety, knowing you are being graded as you write.  There is an option for analyzing your writing so that you can see what happened just prior to a drop or error, what likely caused it.  Here is some further information:

Thanks for the link.

have you actually tried it?

I was way too busy the last time they had this offer, but would like to try it this year.

I've heard mixed reviews; but since it's free, I really should take advantage of it.   Practicing more certainly can't hurt.  

Thank you for posting this.


You're welcome!

Thank you for posting this!!!

I've been practicing!  The directions the site gave worked for me.  I did have a little issue with my ad blocker in Firefox, but figured it out.  I love adding words to my main dix.  Thanks, Janet, for posting this!

I'm using it for my "online school"  I started at 120 Q&A, three minutes, doing two takes, read the outlines, and compare them to my written stuff.  I'm up to 200.  By end of today or tomorrow I should have a real good gage of what my actual skills are. 


I spent an enormous amount time yesterday looking at my outlines, why I wrote something, and adding to my dictionary.  After tomorrow I will hit the over RPR speeds.  I sure am grateful for NCRA and Realtime Coach right now being free for 20 days.


Mary, you keep putting in all those hours, and you'll win a year free.  The person who logs in the most hours gets a year free.  I hope you're the one to do it!   :)

I want to win a job.
I have to say, all those hours some of those people have logged in, I find it surprising.
