Learn this mainly alphabetic shorthand for better grades and faster work!
Within a few days of practice, you can obtain speed fast enough for classroom, lecture or research notetaking, about 40-80 words per minute. Higher speeds come with practice, such as needed for journalist reporter or secretary dictation work in the range of 80 to 125 wpm. I started work on "advanced" lessons for anyone wanting even faster speeds. You can usually complete a lesson in UNDER 15 MINUTES.
This notewriting system allows you to teach yourself. I promise you will find it easy. For demos, look at the videos below. Or see the ones below and more on YOUTUBE and other free video sites. If you like what you see, then obtain my video CD of all the lessons, as described below.

INSTRUCTIONS. Practice the lessons anyway you want, however, I consider these my best instructions.
Do one lesson at a time, in the order given, in this recommended manner for fast learning:
Say the lesson word, then look at the shorthand for that word. We say the word to get the sound of the word and the feel for writing it in a shorter form.
Write the shorthand for the word as you say the word--do this at least four times per practice.
Then do the exercises--say/write each exercise word or phrase at least four times. Try to write faster.
