Click on "Beginning Keystrokes" if you are a beginner.
If you already have good typing skills, with the correct finger-keystroke reaches, you are welcome to click on "Skill Building."
Please think before you jump ahead. Sure, you can "do it your way," but it is best to let the Little Professor be your guide and follow the sequence shown.
When the computer is "online," clicking the "On Line Help" button will give you the current screen.
The screen will appear as shown after clicking on "Beginning Keystrokes."
There are five major typing topics for "Beginning Keystrokes:" "Getting Started"; "Beginning Letters;" "Advanced Letters;" "A to Z Typing," and "Tricky Fingers."

After clicking on "Getting Started," the
screen will appear as shown.
There are 10 exercises to "get you started." The Little Professor will help you "train your fingers."
What should you do after reading the screen? Simply click on the green button.
After clicking on the green "Start" the screen will appear as shown.
Notice the detailed instructions on which finger is assigned to which key. The Little Professor does not leave anything to chance. Follow his guidance and you will learn touch typing.
After reading and checking your finger positions, simply click on the green button.
This is the actual typing exercise. Follow the correct keystrokes, and
type the exercise. Adjust the sound so you can hear when an error is made.
After completion of an exercise, save the results if you wish. Or, please
repeat an exercise until you feel comfortable.
If you save the exercise, you will go to the next exercise in the series.
The selection is set up for the next exercise in the series,"Home Row Review."
The Little Professor knows you have just typed the home row, but
practice is required to build the correct finger-keystroke reaches.
After typing the exercises in "Getting Started" you will be guided through the exercises in: "Beginning Letters," "Advanced Letters," "A to Z Typing," and then "Tricky Fingers."
Let's take an overview of the remaining exercises. After touch typing is mastered, we will be able to tackle data entry.

Accurate data entry. If you don't concentrate, errors will occur.
Key exercises in order shown. Learn the correct key reaches for the numberic pad before proceeding with the other data entry topics.
Quiet, organized work area. The area where data entry is performed, should be free of clutter, and should be without distractions.
Keep nails trimmed. Fingernails should be very small. You simply cannot enter data with long fingernails.
Practice makes perfect. Concentrate on accuracy. Speed will occur with practice.
More practice needed? Retype the exercises several times until satisfied with your typing skills.
Your job is to learn. Only go to the next key pad exercise when you are comfortable.
Strike. Use a quick stroke to strike and bounce off keys in data entry.
Faster! After you learn the basic keystrokes, type faster than comfortable.
