"The success I had in passing the NCRA RPR Written Knowledge Test (WKT), is due to several factors.

One of Many Testimonials from Monette Benoit's Tutoring Program
"Although I attend a court reporting school, I was not comfortable that the vocabulary and speed-building process being taught would move me to graduating speeds in an acceptable timeframe. As my tutor, Monette Benoit is very knowledgeable in all areas of court reporting and very quickly assessed my current study habits and practicing techniques. She offered suggestions that started helping me that same day!
During my private instruction, Monette provided custom dictation based on my needs with emphasis on accuracy, endurance, and speed. She helped me structure a program that is helping me progress at a faster pace, and also provided invaluable information that is helping me make informed decisions as I start my court reporting career" ... see this continued testimonial and more testimonials from tutoring and coaching clients

One of Many Testimonials for CATapult Dictionary Building CDs for Court Reporters and Captioners
"I've had a long history in training captioners, and it is my belief that the strongest captioners are those who are strong writers. Seems simplistic, I know, but the reason that they're strong writers is not because they've got perfect fingers on perfect hands. The reason that they're strong writers is because they can process information at a very rapid pace. And they can process information quickly because they 'know' what they're writing. You can't write well what you don't know and what you don't understand. In the end, it's all about words, but you've got to know the words and the subjects.
Toward that end, I want to recommend to any newbies out there that the materials that you are using to prepare to caption are equally important as the actual writing skills. One product that I would highly recommend is the 'CATapult' CD Series ..." see this continued testimonial and more testimonials on the CATapult Dictionary system by court reporting professionals, instructors and students: CATapult Real-Time Dictionary CDs

** A note from the editor, Monette Benoit:
A donation is shared for each 'CATapult Your Real-Time Dictionary' CD purchase through CRR Books And CDs with The National Breast Cancer Organization, www.nationalbreastcancer.org.
In memory and honor of Monette's brother, Captain Kevin Drue Donnelly, activist, researcher and friend to many who died with hepatitis C, a donation from proceeds will also be shared with "HCV Awareness, Veterans Helping Veterans."
Each August 5th, Monette Benoit publishes an update to Captain Kevin Drue Donnelly, activist, advocate, researcher. Veterans and family members frequently have been walking alone without accurate information on hepatitis C. Now we seek to define where we are headed.
Vaccine-A -- And When The Tombstone Is Inaccurate, You Have To Stand And Make Hard Choices is available
The CDC, Centers for Disease Control, currently posts a number of over five million adults and children within the U.S.A. who have contracted the hepatitis C virus.
Researchers have concluded four times as many people will die from hep C than AIDS within the next decade, as the hepatitis virus continues to spread and piggy-back AIDS. WHO, World Health Organization, posts an international number of over 170 million people with the hepatitis virus.
** This hepatitis C posted 5-plus million CDC number does not include veterans who have served their country; neither does this number include individuals in the military, prisons, homeless populations or individuals outside U.S.A. borders.
Currently, the CDC does not include their numbers with published information.
Monette's brother wrote "The Panama Story" to assist individuals, veterans and their families to learn about hepatitis C. After Kevin's diagnosis, he wrote one chapter each evening as he worked to assist veterans, their families and to conduct research based on facts.
Kevin combined facts, when and how this hepatitis virus appeared in 1942, with fast-paced fiction to 'keep' the reader interested. His book, which was printed and handed to veterans within veteran clinics in 1998, quickly spread throughout the world and has always been free, per Captain Kevin Drue Donnelly. It is available at the site Kevin designed and LeighAnn Vogel - each veterans - built to assist veterans and their families: The Panama Story
