I'm only on 160 wpm, but I need to pass two 160 tests at 98% accuracy.

Anyone got any ideas on how I can do this?

How much practise do you think I should be doing a day?

I've got a couple of 200 wpm tapes to practise to and the magnumsteno website.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Ok thanks Monica!

Do you think 200 is fast enough? perhaps I should be doing 220 also.

I think 200 is great.

When I was striving for accuracy on a fast tape in school, I'd take the tape over and over again until I got it clean. I'm not sure if Mark would recommend that, but that's what I did when I was in school.

I don't do it anymore, but I really think it's what helped me to become such a clean writer.
One thing that really helped me was I would listen to the hire takes in the car and when I was driving around. It really helped me get used to hearing the higher speeds so they didn't sound so fast. Good luck!
I have to agree. I'm not sure it's what put me over the top, but I listened to at least a speed higher, sometimes two speeds higher in the car on the way to school. Or even in my headphones at school during free time. But I wouldn't write it. Just listen and get used to the cadence. You can visualize the strokes, but it takes the pressure off of trying to write a stroke for each word at that speed since you're not there yet!

Good luck!
