Overview

Quickhand(TM) Now you can teach yourself to write high-speed shorthand using just the letters of the alphabet! Quickhand is a new, easy-to-learn, easy-to-use, practical shorthand for business, school, or personal use. In just a few hours, you'll learn to write words as they sound. (No more months of study.) Quickhand is the only alphabetic shorthand based on scientific research into how English is actually used. So you need to learn brief forms of only 35 of the most used words--these make up 40 percent of all words in normal office usage! (No more memorizing hundreds of special symbols and abbreviations for seldom-used words, as in some systems.) With some abbreviations for the most common word endings and beginnings and special sounds, you'll know Quickhand. And you'll be able to write Quickhand quickly and easily--on the job, in school, in meetings, anywhere! Quickhand is one of the Wiley Self-Teaching Guides. It's been tested, rewritten, and retested until we're sure you can teach yourself shorthand on your own. And it's programmed--so you work at your own pace. No prerequisites are needed. Objectives and self-tests tell you how you're doing and allow you to skip ahead or find extra help if you need it. Frequent reviews, practice exercises, and a comprehensive exam reinforce what you learn.
