  1. Suzanne Small Kelly, RDR, RMR, CRR, CBC, CPE, CSR

    Monette Benoit’s materials, http://www.CRRbooks.com and CATapult CD series are wonderful for dictionary building and test prep, too. They are highly recommended by captioning companies for transitioning reporters and have been a tremendous help to me.

  2. Steven Edmondson, B.S., CSR, CLVS, Birmingham, AL

    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.

  3. Carol Thomas, Reporter, Instructor, CSR, RPR, CRI, CPE, “MOM”

    You have to picture me with active children — each day. I’m always happy to give a testimonial about your products because they are all good. All my students, from way back, loved the dictation material “Popcorn Q & A” and the books: WKT CSR, RPR, RMR, RDR Text, Workbook and Study Guides. Your Handbooks are great! And the Sports ‘CATapult’ CD is fun to work on.

    Monette Benoit’s ’CATapult’ CDs are my ticket into the broadcast captioning arena. They are a very important part of my practice routine and have helped me immensely. The CDs are yet another example of Monette’s high quality resources that are available to help us all be better reporters and captioners.

  4. Nancy Patterson, Director, Bryan College, CA, Author, NCRA, “Preparing For The RPR, CM Written Knowledge Test”

    I recommend The Court Reporter Reference Text and Workbook. I give both books an excellent review!

  5. Dr. Richard Lederer, NCRA Language Columnist

    The more words you know, the more accurate will be your speaking, writing, thinking, and reporting. Monette Benoit will inspire you to make vocabulary-building a joyful and lifelong pursuit.

  6. Lara Powell, RPR, CRR

    “Originally, I failed the RPR Written Exam — Twice!! That test was a ‘got-ya’ both times, and I studied both times, and it cost me a lot of money to FAIL that Test TWICE!! I’m a working court reporter in court. I realtime every day — have since day one. That’s where you came in. I purchased the material from Court Reporter Reference Books. Easily – and I mean easily, I passed the RPR, and THAT’s not an EASY test! I’m serious. Use my words; share them, so others do not take that test more than once. The cost of the books is cheaper than the registration to take the test a second or even a THIRD time — LIKE I DID. Your motivation, focus, and concise sharing in the books is proof that had I had the books for the first exam I KNOW I WOULD HAVE PASSED. Now, I’m certified, as the court required when I accepted this position. And I’m also smarter. That test is now behind me… way behind me. I’ve now set my goals higher and bigger! Now, I want tutoring and coaching with you. Thank you, Monette. Oh, thank you.”

  7. Laura B. Ballard, RPR, CSR

    Monette has a strong desire to help the court reporting students succeed in their field. I believe her study material is a wonderful tool that should be utilized by students and court reporters everywhere as an aid in passing written knowledge tests. Thank you, Monette! You have helped me jump a major hurdle in my career!

  8. Rob Leifer, Student– Passed

    “I purchased Monette Benoit’s ‘Test Prep Set’ from http://www.CRRbooks.com and have been studying a little bit every night to prep for the RPR. It is an incredibly comprehensive and thorough resource!! I’ve been studying a little bit every night, and it’s slowly all sinking in! Excellent job with these books! I feel extremely confident that, as long as I do my part, they will thoroughly prepare me for the RPR!”

  9. Judy Larson, St. Louis Community College, MO

    “This is to let you know how pleased I was to receive your book that will help students study to pass the WKT, written knowledge test. I use the “Court Reporter Reference” books in the preparatory classes that we offer every semester for our current students as well as working reporters in the area. You have covered all the areas that are on our test. You have saved me hours of work, and I appreciate all your effort. This will greatly enhance our students’ chance of passing the Written Knowledge Test, WKT.”

  10. 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.”

  11. Jennifer Sati, RMR, CRR, CBC, Program Advisor, Anoka Technical College, 2006

    I’ve been using the WKT books and ’CRRT’ WKT CD for years, and the students love it. Every student that’s completed has passed their written RPR so far. I also tell the students to hang onto it to study for the RMR written test. –2006

  12. Tori Pittman, BA, FAPR, RDR, CRI, CVR-CM-M, RCP

    “I, for one (of a small army, I’m sure), credit Monette’s Court Reporter Reference books with my one-and-done pass of the RDR. SO THOROUGH! Thanks, Monette Benoit!”

  13. 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!
