for example when using the following code:

$("h3").click(function () {
        $(this).next("p").slideToggle("fast");
      
            hidden = $(this).parent().parent(".toggler").find("div > p:hidden").length;
            shown = $(this).parent().parent(".toggler").find("div > p:visible").length;
                console.log(hidden + ' : ' + shown);
});

<div class="toggler">
<a class="toggleall hand" onclick="return false;">Expand</a>
      <div>
            <h3 class="hand">Toggle 3</h3>
            <p>
            Mauris mauris ante, blandit et, ultrices a, suscipit eget, quam.
            </p>
      </div>
      <div>
            <h3 class="hand">Toggle 4</h3>
            <p>
            Mauris mauris ante, blandit et, ultrices a, suscipit eget, quam.
            ut neque.
            </p>
      </div>
      <div>
            <h3 class="hand">Toggle 5</h3>
            <p>
            Mauris mauris ante, blandit et, ultrices a, suscipit eget, quam.
            </p>
      </div>
</div>

problem:
there are 3 toggle areas
i'm outputting the number of hidden p's & visible p's to the console
it starts off correctly but then gets behind by 1
see if you see what I mean.

Question:
What am i doing wrong and or is that a better way to do this?

Do it that way, put the code inside a callback function for the slideToggle, so you make sure it's executed after the the slide action.

$("h3").click(function () {
        $(this).next("p").slideToggle("fast", function(){
	        hidden = $(this).parent().parent(".toggler").find("div > p:hidden").length;
            shown = $(this).parent().parent(".toggler").find("div > p:visible").length;
            console.log(hidden + ' : ' + shown);
        });
      
});
