You are partially correct, sir! I use block printing as detailed by WB5YUZ, above, because it works for me. If cursive or whatever works for others, no problem. (I mention this in the "12 tips" article - try different things and see what works best for you). The same goes for other parts of the task. Some may do best with a ballpoint, others a #2 pencil, still others a felt tip. Lined paper vs. unlined. Headphones vs. speaker. Try them all and see what works - that's the most important rule.
