Testimonials & Kudos (p. 2)


You're definitely the BeST!! Thank you for always responding to me and for giving me encouragement, too. I'm so glad I signed up with you two!   Jenny

I'm already overwhelmed by the promptness of your and Cathy's responses and am assured that I have joined the BeST!!!   Trisha

Business is great. I am working for four different reporters right now. I have another sending me work tomorrow. Thanks for all you have done to get me started. You will never know how grateful I reall am because words can never express all of my gratitude. God bless you, Jacki

I am a graduate of BeST, have a very solid scoping business as a result of taking the course. I couldn't be where I am today in my scoping business if it weren't for the training I received through the course. I did extensive research into all the scoping school options before deciding on BeST, and I am very happy with the training and professionalism of the BeST course. Christine

Thank you!! I always appreciate your explanations and encouragement. You are both awesome and terrific "cheerleaders" letting me know how great I'm doing (or not). Do you ever take a break? It seems like it doesn't matter what time I email something, one of you is sending an answer a short time later. Kudos! Joy

I took the course last fall and finished it in two or three months. Cathy and Judy are both great to work with and were (and continue to be) extremely helpful and supportive. The knowledge I gained from the course has enabled me to stay as busy as I want to be (and sometimes busier than I want to be!) for the past year, and some of the reporters I've worked with have asked me where I took my training and have said it must have been very comprehensive because they have found very little, if anything, to change when I return their jobs to them. Enjoy the course! It's a great investment. Peggy

Thanks to you two and the patient help you gave me as I was starting out. Oh, and BTW, I haven't given up on my writing -- spent last summer CARTing at the local universities and notetaking for hearing-impaired students. Think how many people you and Cathy helped when you helped me! There's one deaf college grad who wouldn't be if it weren't for me, or if it weren't for you helping me. There are people in other states who wouldn't have made deadlines on Internet transcription for the courts if not for you. There are important court cases (the Carnahan case in Missouri, for example), that might have been more drug out if not for . . .guess who? YOU! And there is a gal and her husband in STL who might have lost their home if not for the retraining provided by . . . (you guessed it!) I can never thank you and Cathy enough for all you taught me, but I SURE know who I'm sending my "Scoping-bound" students to this spring! Take care, and wishing you much success and many blessings! You'll always be in my prayers and in my heart. KT

Several years ago I took the BestScopingTechniques schooling. It has to be the best decision I ever made. I now have my own business. And BEST of all, I get to work at home. Taking this scoping schooling was wonderful. Any time I had a question, they were always there to answer. The entire course ran very smoothly, and there were always many helpful suggestions. I'd do it over again in a minute. At the end of the course, they helped me to understand how to set up a business. Upon occasion, I still ask for help and they have never let me down. Thank you Cathy and Judy. You're my heroes. Margo

I am one of your grateful grads. I am slowly building my business as I am still working part-time. I work on Case Catalyst 4.7 and really enjoy doing med/mal depositions. I canít imagine ever being able to do this work without having taken your course. You gals are terrific! Maureen

I'm happy to report that I've been working almost non-stop since graduation. Thanks so much. I hope the two of you are well and enjoying the holidays. Carol L.

Dear Cathy and Judy, Thank you so much for the graduation package. Also, thank you for the web pages (they are beautiful!). I am ready to start scoping full time, thanks to the two of you. Joy L.

Judy and Cathy have created a great program at a fair cost, and they are available, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. In addition, they have their own board where members are court reporters, scopists, and part of the CAT program companies. This board and its wonderful members were part of my research. It was one of the positive factors that led me to my decision. My advice is to make a list of questions, talk to one or both ladies, and then let your instinct help you decide. I did, and I do not regret my decision to take their course. I have been highly pleased with everything, and I am looking forward to a long relationship with Cathy, Judy, and the members of SSG. I hope this helps you, coming from a BeST student, soon to be a proud graduate. Debbie


Just a thank you for my "Grad Pack." I received it today and am walking around with a big grin on my face! I so appreciate all your time and support you've given me over the last few months. My website looks great and I'm anxious to get out there and apply all that knowledge you so generously shared with me. Again, many thanks for your kind support and encouragement, you are truly a blessing. Barb

I have quite a few different reporters I work with. Mostly Florida, New Jersey, Arizona and California. Thank you so much for all the help that has come from you and Cathy. This sure takes a lot of learning. I actually have reporters who now tell me how good I am. I'm really getting hooked on this profession. Everytime I get a new job, I can't wait to get it started. Again, thank you. Margo

After taking your class, I started scoping for a person who is an Advantage Software rep. She allowed me to attend many seminars about Eclipse and Accucap, the Broadcast Captioning software. Thanks to that, I began helping the faculty at St. Louis Community College's Department of Court Reporting. They used my "knowledge" (haha) to help set up their labs and troubleshoot Eclipse problems. As a result of that, the Technical Schools of St. Louis asked me to teach machine shorthand to their students. I've undertaken that, and I will soon attend more technical education at Advantage Software in West Palm Beach on encoders/decoders since I'm purchasing a large number of them for schools in St. Louis. Hahahaha! Can you believe it? But it's all largely thanks to you and Cathy and the patient help you gave me as I was starting out. Oh, and BTW, I haven't given up on my writing -- spent last summer CARTing at the local universities and notetaking for hearing-impaired students. Think how many people you and Cathy helped when you helped me! There's one deaf college grad who wouldn't be if it weren't for me, or if it weren't for you helping me.

All I can say is from personal experience from taking the BeST scoping course, the way the course is designed and the support and guidance that is offered by Cathy and Judy is fabulous. The course is excellent so I had no problem learning the steno through the course. They just have the lesson plans set up really well so you can learn steno effectively. I definitely could not have learned how to read steno without a course. That would have been nearly impossible for me. Christine
