I'm a court reporting student, too! Please check out my blog -- stenonerd.blogspot.com -- where I chronicle my court reporting journey and where I hope to be an encouragement to fellow students like yourself. Thanks in advance!
Hey Christine, just practice every day. I suggest about two hours a day in addition to the dictation you get during class time. I believe in quality over quantity when it comes to practicing. Also, use your realtime as a way to get instant feedback on what you're doing. And when you're done with your practice session, edit that session so you can get practice using Case CATalyst.
I'm an online court reporting student trying to build speed and pass my tests. What is the best way to increase speed? I know that accuracy has to come first and I'm striving for cleaner notes everytime I practice. Does anyone have advice on the best way to increase speed and accuracy? My goal is to increase my speed 40wpm a semester. Any suggestions? Thanks
