  1. should i write shorthand perfectly as in the book written…. LOL.  If you do, that is great.  I don't and I don't think a lot do.     What drills so i can master gregg. Just practice what's in your textobok for now.  Once you learned the theory you can go from there and maybe find books with drills, but really after you learn the theory you can just practice taking dictation.   What things you as a gregg learner do what attitude should i. An attitude that you want to learn this.  If you don't have that, then you won't.  And it sounds like you do.   What are the things you do when you finish each lesson what drills are you doing just to memorize all and the concepts of each lesson. You may not memorize them all after the lesson.  If you read and write down the words, read and write down the reading exercises, then you will eventually learn it.  I found sometimes going back to previous lessons and just reading them to refresh my memory (and found it was easier and I could actaully read it! LOL).    What are the tips u can give me so i cant think for the shorthand of the word whenever dictating to eliminate lost of time and think that longhand is more convenient. I explained this a little on your other post.  Just give it time.  After you learn the shorthand you will do better in dictation. Debbi

  2. Thank You Debbi but somethimes i give up in learning shorthand im currently using the centennial edition in this edition more brief forms and the curves is so uneasy to do i cant stroke out them. and i think its the hardest edition of gregg bec. it has more than 130 brief forms. is other editions is more easier to learn than the latest and does the latest and later versions compliments for each other in other words does its more words in different cases can be written in shorthand.  is it okay to right imperfectly just assure you can read it by yourself especially when transcribing it

  3. Hi. Im Danny and I've been doing Gregg since I became
    fascinated with it at 7 or 8 years of age; I am now
    72. I am also self-taught. I know the anniversary,
    Simplieifed, Jubilee and studied the court shortcuts
    on my own.

    How you can help yourself?

    1. Read well written shorthand! And do this over and
    over again. Especially the shorthand plates you want
    to increase your ability to write cleanly and
    confidently.

    2. Be sure you know the basics of your system:
    anniversaay, simplified, etc.

    4. Don't invent your own short cuts!

    5. Copy the plates this way: Read a letter several
    times. Copy it carefully. Go back and start dictating
    it to yourself aloud and write it out.

    Hope this helps

    Will all my love to John Gregg and my brothers and
    sisters on Gregshorthand!

    Danny

  4. Hello, Its Danny.

    After reading my last message I realized I had made
    Spelling and Capitalization errors. You'd never
    believe I've graduated from 4 universites at the top
    of my class…and by the way: Gregg Shorthand is the
    one thing besides the ability to type that gave me
    these advantages in my education.

    Also, I skipped #3 of my post. Sorry, I guess I'm
    creating my own shortcuts even with numbers.

    All have a great day! And HAPPY WRITING!

    Danny
