"Easy and straightforward to learn from this book. Would recommend the speed writing dictionary to accompany it.
"I attempted to learn shorthand in college many years ago - and failed miserably! When I heard about speedwriting I decided I would 'give it ago', as being able to take notes at speed would be very useful in my work. I'm so pleased I bought the book - the method is very easy to use and intuitive, and the book is divided into manageable chunks of learning and practise (which is aided by the free workbook and dictation exercises available from the UoL website).
Speedwriting is very easy to learn as long as you put in the practice, and I particularly like that you can adapt it to your own individual requirements.
"BakerWrite really cuts the mustard. Also, it is so, so, so easy to learn. For most of us it is all we shall ever need. Lots of us would find it useful:
students, researchers, academics
anyone in a commercial office
anyone who regularly drafts letters or reports
professionals such as engineers, lawyers, doctors, nurses
anyone who regularly attends meetings or conferences
Speedwriting is faster than longhand. The second virtue is worth considering too: it lets you reduce your 'writing miles' by more than 50 percent. Imagine Friday afternoon at the end of a really busy week, which has been jam-packed with lectures or meetings. You have made your notes using less than a half of the writing you would have required when using longhand. Imagine your satisfaction! Because your hand does not need to write so quickly (when compared to longhand) you can lay down a neater copy as well.
So, speedwriting gives you wings and it lightens your load. Because of its simplicity and serviceability BakerWrite is one of the best systems you will find. Highly recommended.
