What fellow professionals, students and instructors say about our NCRA and State Test Prep materials:
"Your NCRA Test Prep is better than a childhood teddy bear"
This is good stuff, down to earth and on the level that working reporters need. From now on, our court reporters are going to get to know the CSR, RPR, RMR Written Knowledge Test Textbook, Written Exam Workbook, and Realtime Vocabulary Workbook by Monette Benoit. All of these pieces are better than a childhood teddy bear, as they will be dragging them around everywhere and maybe taking them home to bed. Steven Edmondson, B.S., CSR, CLVS, Birmingham, AL
"NCRA Test Prep Workbook is a windfall for the court reporting profession."
Good fortune is often called a windfall. This stems from medieval England when commoners had trouble finding wood for fuel. Royal decree prohibited them from chopping down trees, so when the wind knocked down branches it was a stroke of good luck.
Your NCRA, CSR, RPR, RMR, RDR Court Reporter Reference Workbook is a windfall for the court reporting profession. The information in an easily-referenced and easily-retained format is a stroke of good luck for working reporters, students and instructors of court reporting. And what a delight to find an instructional textbook that is informative and entertaining! I support your advice on how to take written knowledge tests in the Court Reporter Reference Text. Your test-taking tips are helpful and will, hopefully, relieve test-taking anxiety attacks. Both are necessary if one is truly interested in becoming certified. I applaud this much-needed contribution to our future! Mary Smith Agren, RPR, CRI, Instructor, Denver, Colorado
"Thanks to your books, I passed the first time."
Monette, I wanted to say thank you. I passed the NCRA RPR written knowledge exam, WKT, the first time after I ordered your books. They are great. I only wish I would have had them the first time I took it. Everyone I spoke to about you said that you are so proud and enthusiastic about court reporting. It is nice to know there are people like you who are willing to reach out and lend a hand to those who stand in the same position you used to many years ago. Michael Jenkins, CCR
"I passed my renewal for Registered Diplomate Reporter thanks to you."
Having been a captioner for several years and out of reporting and testing arenas, I knew I would need to cram for the NCRA Registered Diplomate Reporter exam, RDR. I chose the CSR, RPR, RMR, RDR Written Knowledge Test Textbook and REALTIME Vocabulary Workbook to bring myself up to date - and, how out of date I was! These books have excellent study material for the CSR, RPR and RMR. I received my RDR results. Kathy DiLorenzo, RDR-CRR-CBC - Director, Captioning Relations, VITAC
"Before you, I had file cabinets of miscellaneous handouts for my students."
Your CSR, RPR Written Knowledge Test Court Reporter Reference Textbook is the most exciting book I have come across in years. I have been teaching in the Court Reporting program at Del Mar since 1971; and throughout these years, I have accumulated four file cabinets full of handouts that I use in preparing students for the CSR WKT test. Your book assembles all the information contained in the four file cabinets in one book in orderly fashion. Thank you for making my life easier. Peggy A. Laudadio, M.S., Del Mar College
"Your NCRA test prep covers every area on the test."
This is to let you know how pleased I was to receive your book that will help students study to pass the WKT, written knowledge test. I use the "Court Reporter Reference" books in the preparatory classes that we offer every semester for our current students as well as working reporters in the area. You have covered all the areas that are on our test. You have saved me hours of work, and I appreciate all your effort. This will greatly enhance our students’ chance of passing the Written Knowledge Test, WKT. Judy Larson, St. Louis Community College, MO
"Your WKT Textbook and Workbook are an invaluable asset to one’s library."
Bravo! Bravo! What else can I say except that you have done a tremendous job. You must have spent an enormous amount of time putting together the CSR, RPR, RMR Written Knowledge Test Textbook and Workbook. I am sure that the students who use your books to prepare for the WKT, written exam, must sing your praises.
I believe that not only are your books helpful for test taking, but they are an invaluable asset to one’s reference library. Florence B. Lefkof, Court Reporting Instructor
"Your WKT materials offer a wealth of information for ALL of our classes."
Thank you for providing such valuable tools toward preparing students for the RPR and CSR written knowledge tests. You have given us a wealth of information to use in other classes as well - terminology, English, Court Procedures and CAT. A special tribute to your dedication to the court reporting profession. The RPR, RMR, RDR Textbook, Workbook and Study Guide books are wonderful! Keep up the hard work! Dr. Pauletta Morse, Associate Professor, SIU, Carbondale, IL
"You’re helping us provide well-rounded court reporting graduates."
I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to fully review your fine book, CSR, RPR, RMR Written Knowledge Test Court Reporters Reference Textbook, which is aimed at assisting students to pass the written knowledge test given in conjunction with the NCRA RPR test and CSR state tests.
We have ordered this book for use in our CSR prep course, which is given four times each year, for I feel it will be a great benefit to them. The format makes it readily workable, and the content is good. I have frequently stated that although students must have good speed and accuracy in machine writing, the knowledge factor is most important in an adequate court reporter. Enough has not been done along this line of student development; and your book certainly will contribute greatly to producing a well-rounded graduate. I wish you much success in the distribution, which has so much merit I recommend it. Mary H. Knapp, Chairman, CTRP, Court Reporting Department
"Because of your WKT materials, I passed the RPR exam."
I bought study books from you a few months back for the RPR Written Knowledge Test. I took the NCRA WKT, written exam, for the RPR last Saturday; I just wanted to let you know that your books were VERY helpful in studying for the test and I felt better prepared! I passed the written RPR exam. Using and studying your WKT reference books helped tremendously! Lisa, Court Reporter
Your books helped me pass the NCRA RMR written, WKT. They were extremely helpful -- it shows how hard you worked. Thanks so much! Lisa B. Johnston, RPR, CRR, CCP
"Your NCRA Textbook and Workbook are excellent!"
I recommend The Court Reporter Reference Text and Workbook. I give both books an excellent review! Nancy Patterson, Director, Bryan College, CA, Author, NCRA, "Preparing For The RPR, CM Written Knowledge Test"
