Happy Hump Day! :)

So... I asked my teacher if I could share the info on the practice session for the California CSR this coming Friday (see my last blog post).  Unfortunately, she asked that I not share the 411 with the world.  It seems one or more persons who have taken (or will be taking) the CSR exam have complained that there will be too many people at the CSR warm-up session.  The small crowd could easily create extra anxiety on a test-taker's nerves.  I completely understand.

So... instead of sharing that info (as I hoped I would), I'll share some link love of some great sites for speedbuilding, especially at the 200 wpm level.  Hope this helps!

Long time no see! :)

I know, I know... it's been forever since I've updated this blog.  Sorry. :( I've been busy though! :) I'm now at Qualifiers, thank GOD!  YAY!!!  One more test to pass to get to the CSR Exam!  Goal date: October 2012!  Pray for me!  I'm gonna work my tail off to get there, with GOD's help!

For you California Steno Nerds, I just wanted to pass on the news that Cypress College will be hosting a mock CSR exam this coming Monday, June 18th, at 10:30 AM in Business Education 304.  They will be giving four 200/10 exams and a few mock exams at 180 and 160.  Parking is $2.00 and fee for the mock exams is $2.00.

Cypress College is located at 9200 Valley View Street, Cypress, CA 90630.  Phone number is 714-484-7000.  Here's their website: http://www.cypresscollege.edu/

If you have any questions, please contact Carolee Freer at cfreer@cypresscollege.edu or 714-482-7211 Ext. 48055.

I won't be going to this mock CSR.  However, I will be going to the practice CSR this Thursday night (June 21st) and/or Friday morning (June 22nd) in anticipation for the CSR exam on June 22nd in California.  It will be held at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles near LAX (6101 West Century Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90045; website), although I don't know the specific times yet.  I heard that only Qualifier students are allowed access to the practice sessions and that it cost $10 for both time slots.  I'll post more info on this as soon as I get it.

In the meantime... practice well!  And have a great weekend! :)
