Go to http://www.typing.com/tutor/
Based on your existing typing experience, decide what course to begin with. If you have never touched typed, and have a hard time determining where the keys are, start with the beginner courses to learn where the keys are located. But as soon as you can, you need you need to work with:
Intermediate Speed Drills
Intermediate Wrap Up
Advanced Skill Builder Drills.
When you are ready to determine your speed, go to Test (a tab across the top) and complete a 3 minute test to asses your Net Speed.
Your goal over the next few weeks is to make sure that you can type at least ~45 words per minute.
If your typing skills are subpar, you MUST take it upon yourself to increase your typing speed. Plan to visit the main hall computer lab in the afternoons to get your typing skills up to speed. If you have a computer at home, you might want to practice at home. You should be able to type about ~45 words per minute. Anything less and you will find yourself routinely behind on the focus and struggling to keep up. So be sure to put some practice time in.
A daily grade will be recorded at the interim of the 2nd GP for your Avg Net Typing Speed...be sure to run Intermediate Speed Drills.
When you do the test, please avoid clicking the GAME.
If you get the speed up really high, like in the 60s, you can generate a certificate that can be used to help you get a job.
