What is shorthand?

I’ve never heard of that term before

Using abbreviations/symbols in your notes. For example: b/c for because.

Shorthand , also called stenography, a system for rapid writing that uses symbols or abbreviations for letters, words, or phrases.

Thank you so much!

It is just a way to shorten words when writing quickly!! Each person kind of adapts their own system so that they can understand their notes!
