Need to learn how to type or keyboard? Free online typing tutorials.

There are many “free” typing tutorials listed on the web and for some the “free” part was the ability to freely download after paying for the course. These 4 seem to have clear directions and have decent visuals like the one to the left; without so many annoying pop up ads. Let me know what you think or if you know of an excellent site that you have used yourself.

    Hi, I’m just searching the net for help on how to study, when the student is an extreme case of ADHD.
    May I remark on a misspelling on this page?: “i before e, except after c”; I am not aware that ‘Retrieving’ is an exception to this rule . . . sorry.
