SECTION 6: Practice Files

Access to a large database of actual files, written by a dozen or more different court reporters, on which students may practice their editing skills. Included within this unit are “answer key” files, or edited files, to which students may compare their work and see where they have made errors. This prevents students from repeating mistakes and ensures they are learning the correct method of editing. This also gives students a chance to practice editing files for reporters with different preferences and different writing styles.
