More Important than Dictation

This essay from the book "New Shorthand Dictation Exercises" by Edward H. Eldridge gives excellent advice regarding the appropriate time to take new matter dictation (the author calls it "general dictation"), how to study shorthand, and how to perform "autodictation" when a dictator is not available.

The book instructs the students to follow the advice from this article after the student has written the outlines of the words that appear next to the article. The passages in this book are marked every 20 actual words (not standard words), and groups of 100 words are indicated by a vertical line.
