I am a stay home mom so I wanted to look for a job that I could do from home that would not take up too much time and would be easy for me to do. I can type fast and have a large vocabulary, so I figured medical transcription from home would be a breeze. It was fairly expensive to start, but they allow you to be billed monthly. I received my first packet and eagerly jumped right in to the lesson. I took an hour every evening after my son went to bed to do my lessons. I also spent another 45 minutes (typically when I was on the elliptical working out) to review the terms and definitions. I was always a great student so I was very confident I could get this course done in no time. I thought I was on track with the lessons until I received a letter in the mail that I was a few lessons behind. This prompted me to speed up my studying and homework each night. I stopped reviewing the vocabulary words and instead focused on completing the assignments and tests. I was trying to get through it as quickly as possible. When you complete certain lessons, they send you the next packets. I ended up not being able to complete this course because I was too far behind. I was just skipping the entire lessons and going straight to the tests but it still wasn't fast enough. I thought it was going to be something I could do on my own in my spare time. If I had dedicated several hours a day to this course, I would have definitely completed it. I would recommend it to someone who has the time to dedicate to the course.
