Detailed curriculum

Basic Keyboard Lessons The first course in the Typequick Professional product. In this course the key positions are introduced and practiced over a series of 10 lessons (with 3 parts per lesson). Optional extension lessons are provided for each lesson to give extra practice on the current set of keys.

Accuracy Challenge A practice course where the emphasis is on accuracy rather than speed. The style of the lessons is “accuracy mode”, which means the cursor only moves on from the current letter to the next one when the correct key is pressed.

Speed Challenge A practice course with the emphasis on speed rather than accuracy. The lessons are set up in “speed mode” where the cursor is allowed to move on even if the wrong key is pressed.

Advanced Challenge A practice course where lessons alternate between speed and accuracy mode

Punctuation and Symbols In this course the symbols on the top row of the keyboard (and the non-alpha symbols on the bottom row) are introduced and practiced.

Keypad In this course the keypad keys are introduced and practiced

The Planets A long practice course in “accuracy mode”. Each lesson contains text (with an extension lesson) about one of the planets in our solar system.

Does this course really work?

Over the years we have had many people take the course who thought they'd never be able to gain any speed or type accurately - and they have all been surprised! Of course, you must plan to spend time, consistently, working through the lessons. It doesn't happen by magic, but if you put the time in and follow the course instructions, your speed and accuracy will definitely improve. How good you get, of course, depends on you.

Do I need to know how to type to start with?>

No, this course will get you started, if you can't type now it may take you a while to get your fingers into the groove - but you can get there!
