    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 better than their childhood teddy bear, dragging them around everywhere and maybe taking them home to bed.

  2. Joshua Foley, CART Provider, Court Reporter

    “The content of your 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.”

  3. Mary Smith Agren, RPR, CRI, Denver, Colorado

    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 CSR, RPR, 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!
