Thanks for all you do, Monette, to continue populating our great profession. It’s working!!! Melanie Humphrey-Sonntag, RDR, CRR, CCP

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 D. Frisolone, RDR, CRC, FAPR

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

Thank you! Your books were great to study from. Lots of practice tests, and the answer book (“Companion Study Guide”) was so detailed! I passed on my first try. Joy Dee, Student

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)

Together, we are reducing the court reporting shortage.

CART Captioner and Court Reporter Lexicon Bible 2.0 The Second Coming

What are CATapult’s lexicons?

A lexicon is an alphabetical listing of words. The plural of ‘lexicon’ is lexica or lexicons.
