Welcome to CSR Nation
The dictation portion of the exam requires the candidate to attain 95% accuracy
for 5 minutes at 200 words per minute (wpm) of variable material and 95%
accuracy for 5 minutes at 225 wpm of two-voice testimony.
I'm just wondering if the 200wpm is jury charge or a combination of jury and lit?
I'm practicing for next month's test.
I just know that California and New York are the most difficult tests to take. The rest are supposed to be a lot easier. Don't know if that's still the case, though.
Good luck to you. I hate taking tests; my hands start to shake.
Fun fact, Kelli (lol): I'm a CA CSR but moved to NJ for a short time and traveled ahead of the move so I could take the NJ test. When I was turning in my test and they saw that I was "the CA reporter," they asked me how I found their test, and I said kinda challenging, actually. I remember it had medical testimony. They told me, yeah, supposedly CA is the hardest and NJ second. Who knows?
Good luck, Janet.
It's really a combination. It's got elements of both. Not as easy as a jury charge but not as hard as a straight lit.
Janet, don't quote me on this but I think the RPR gets you into Illinois without taking the test.
This is correct. Illinois has reciprocity with the RPR.
Thanks for the replies, everyone!
