The content of your WKT, written material, study material is great; not to mention I also knew how to find many of the distracting answers that I now recognize as my downfall the last time. Of course you can use my words. Heck, I’d give you a kidney — just no fingers. Joshua Foley, RPR, CCP
I studied with the NCRA study guide, and it didn’t work. I studied Monette Benoit’s ‘Purple Books’ and passed. Jennifer Billstein-Miller, RPR, CRR, CCR (NJ)
As a veteran court reporter who holds multiple certifications, one area of my professional life where I lacked confidence was the area of taking written exams. This year, after studying from Monette’s series of books, I have so far taken two written exams and have walked into both feeling prepared. This level of preparedness has led to a higher level of confidence. In one exam, I completed 60 questions in 20 minutes! In the other exam, I felt so confident in my knowledge that I pushed up the date for which I was scheduled to take the exam and passed it on the first attempt. You will not be disappointed with Monette’s series of books whatsoever! Anthony Frisolone, RDR, CRC, FAPR
