Hehehe! Yes, I'm "Steno Nerd," and you read about that suitcase deal in my blog. Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad that post was able to help another person! Always my intent! :)

Thanks for your advice. I WILL NEVER GIVE UP!!! :D One day I'm going to have that same feeling you had walking out of the RPR testing room knowing that I passed!

And, yes, Marc from Simply Steno is very awesome! He answered all my questions (lots and lots of them!) so patiently and thoroughly. Couldn't be happier! :)

I'll definitely keep you posted! :)

Thanks for all the advice and encouragement, Kim! So grateful! :)

Hi, Kim.

I'm so glad that you had lots of good things to say about Simply Steno. As for your one con -- that they only go up to 200 wpm -- rest assured! They have alleviated that "problem," and now the program goes all the way up to 225 wpm! :)

Yeah, I need the affordable, flexible schedule that an online school can provide. After doing some research for the past several days, it seems like Simply Steno is the best route for me. Marc is very patient and very helpful with all my million-and-one questions! Hehehe.

So in your state, you don't have a CSR/state test? You just need to pass the RPR? If so, VERY AWESOME! And if not, you already passed the RPR, so I'm sure you'll pass your CSR with flying colors, too! :)

I'm in California, so they require us to have our CSR before working as an official. I'm not sure if it's the same requirement to be a freelance reporter, but I believe so.

I plan to take Simply Steno till graduation at 225 wpm, take/pass the RPR, then take/pass the CSR. Then I'll have both an RPR and CSR... with Simply Steno's help!

What do you think? I'd love to know! Thanks! :)

BTW, what kind of work do you do? Freelancer, official, CART, captioner? So happy for your success!

Hi, Kim.

I'm looking into SimplySteno's online program. Could you please tell me your pros and cons for the program? I've always gone to a brick-and-mortar school, and I'm in California. I'll need to pass the CSR in my state, but they say I can take the RPR in order to take the CSR... and SimplySteno focuses on preparing their students to take the RPR in flying colors. Do you feel they do a good job? You really only needed to take their course for a year?

Any help you can give is much appreciated! Thanks so much! :)


P.S. Love the music! :)

Kim, great photos!

You know what. I didn't know you learned my StenoMaster Theory. Do you mind telling me your story?
