Typing/Keyboarding 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 seem to have clear directions and have decent visuals 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.

  1. Thank you for shared information

    Regarding typing test,
    In the 1980’s typing speed was one of the criteria to get jobs anywhere.
    But slowly this trend stopped and typing speed was not important to most of the employers.
    This is the reason why typing tests, which were once very popular suddenly, vanished from the scene.
    However recently we see a growing shift in the attitude of the employers

      Hello, the tutorials are for people who didn’t learn to type using all fingers efficiently and want to learn before they are limited by the “hunt and peck” method.

  3. Fantastic post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject?

    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it!
