The written knowledge test is a significant leg of the Supreme Court Test in New York. A significant portion of that test seems to be spellings. For example they’ll throw a word out there like connotation and give 2 ridiculous spellings, one that is right, and one that looks right. My advice is: We are court reporters. Mimic typing the word and you have a better chance at realizing which spelling is correct over eyeballing it.
On a positive note, it’s my understanding that there is also a NYSCRA WKT course video available free for NYSCRA members through Dominick Tursi and a $5 class to be held by Joshua Edwards (JoshuaBEdwards1980@gmail.com). If you’re feeling shaky on grammar, punctuation, or things that might come up on the WKT, it’s a great time to be proactive and get yourself some guidance.
I have also had the good fortune of reading that Monette Benoit’s “Purple Books” at CRRbooks.com are an excellent resource for WKT prep.
Good luck to everyone on the test. And should anyone know of more test prep options, feel free to leave a comment below.
