Can I prepare at home of ssc stenography


for learning shorthand you must go to an institute. Otherwise it is very difficult to learn shorthand in home on your own. At least you must reach speed then you can prepare at home by listening audios.

In written exam allot 50marks for shorthand outlines to weed out aspirants who doesn’t know about shorthand.
