Athletics have always been a big part of my life. One thing that stood out is when coaches would say the offseason is the time when you can improve the most. That idea carries over to being successful in school and work too. Take time this offseason (summer) to improve your keyboarding skills and reap the benefits for years to come. Typing.com is your offseason workout program.
Most of us had typing/keyboarding as we made our way through the K-12 education system. Some of us took it seriously, struggled mightily, but listened and believed in our instructor that looking down at the keyboard would get you nowhere. Others didn’t heed this advice and just did enough to pass the class. For those of you in the first group, your life has probably been a lot easier than those in the second group (It took me two tries to figure this out).
Typing.com is a great resource to help you master keyboarding. The website is free to use and if you set up an account it will keep track of all your progress. If you didn’t know by now, I really believe in keyboarding skills! Documents or simple emails are so much easier when you can keyboard correctly.
The keyboarding doesn’t have to be all work either. Take a break with one of many games to help you learn.
Lastly, there are typing tests to see how fast and accurate you are. Let’s see what you’re made of. My test results are below. Can anyone beat it? Click here to go to the test page.
