    Get Mavis Bacon software. You will be ahead of your class in no time flat. Very inexpensive too.

    Don't cheat and look at the keys! Learning to touch type was one the skills I'm most proud of, it feels very awkward in the beginning, but once your fingers learn where they're supposed to go, you'll go much faster than the cheaters. Stick with it - it's worth it!

    Play a text-based MUD.

    Your typing skills will shoot through the roof.

    ahhh I remember those days over 40 years ago when we where taught to type on typewriters........ our teacher to increase our speeds used to make us type to the following exercises.....

    The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog

    Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party

    But we had to type to really fast music to get our speeds really flowing! ... it was good fun .. see how many times you can type that in one minute..... and practice everyday it really works...

    Have fun..........

    It's okay-I have to learn b and n tonight![​IMG] How am I supposed to learn all these keys?At least I can type a phrase the right way:

    her dad is here;hide her killer heels

    I know,it sounds nuts.They have us practice all kind of stupid phrases that don't make any sence.Sometimes we don't even type words!Like:

    I took a semester of typing, in '69, on a manual, slam 'em down hard typewriter, and didn't use it again, until I got a computer, in '05.
    I didn't forget a thing.... I don't do numbers well, because is seldom have need for them.
