I’ve been looking at used shorthand books online and I’ve come across “Individual Progress Method,” “Structured Learning Method,” and “Programmed Gregg Shorthand, Experimental Edition.” Does anyone have any idea what the difference is in these books?

Hi all, I’m looking at getting a “drawing tablet” for inputting shorthand! Anyone have experience with this? What tablets work better? I’m thinking about starting off with a $70 Wacom Intuos, but was wondering if anyone had suggestions. My main use-case that I have planned is grabbing free childrens’ books, and adding Gregg, probably in…
