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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is an excellent tool. After working thru the book, I showed it to both our Human Resource person and the owner of the company. They were so impressed they had me setup training workshops for the entire staff and also teach "Quickhand" in the 1st week of our 2 to 6 week training class for new employees. The employees must take notes during calls and write a summary at the end of the call, speed and accuracy is very important as these are legal documents subsequent to subpoena. We found that if the employees where left to "make up" there own shortcut notes, the notes would be rather difficult to understand or decipher. So consistency was the key and Quickhand came to the rescue.
The book has easy to follow steps and if you invest the time, in less than a month you will learn how to write in quickhand.
I loved how the book was designed. It feels as if you're listening to the teacher as you read the instructions. I recommend this quickhand book to anyone who wants to learn quickhand writting.
I bought this book for teaching my high school students how to write faster when taking notes during class. The only problem I can see is that many high schoolers didn't learn cursive very well and they strongly prefer to print all the time. So it may not work for the diehard printers.
