As a beginner, this was very helpful to me. The best tip I took away was split screen shortcut, Thank you
March 11, 2022
I thought there would be feedback when typing so that you would know that you were typing the correct keys

Regard Rhewel

This class is exactly what I needed. The course is laid out in an easy to digest fashion and all the practice material is provided. Learning some new shortcut keys was a nice bonus as well.

This was a great course. If you're looking to learn touch typing and shortcut keys for MS Word and Excel, then this course is for you. It has simple instructions, demonstrations and exercises. It's also a great refresher course for those who know some keyboard shortcuts. This can boost your productivity.

Very good course. Clear explanations and appropriately paced. Just needs better audio (perhaps wearing a headset would help) to be perfect.

The course info was great. The speech was a little hard to understand at times, but overall a good experience.

Commenced my training 3rd June 2020, my initial wpm was a sad and pathetic really+-26wpm, just under 2 weeks later with keybr practice of total about 4 hrs 42 minutes my average is now 43 wpm and improving steadily, my aim is to reach avg 60wpm after 4 weeks. A fantastic improvement really, however as the teacher indicate you HAVE to practice the word exercises everyday and practice on keybr everyday. This course works and for those who want to type quicker and more accurate, go for it!!

This is the course which i need to learn. The concept of instructor is very clear and lecture is easy to understand. So course is use full for me.
May 23, 2020
Had done touch typing many years ago, this is a good refresher and easy to follow for beginners. Also this rating took ages to type as I am touch typing it....slowly haha

The instructor knows the subject well and is honest that it isn't the most exciting subject to learn. He does a good job of motivating you to stick with it and you must do the practice if you want to learn. The downloads and resources are very helpful. The added or bonus material is also helpful if you use Microsoft products such as Word and Excel and there are a few trick for windows OS as well.
May 5, 2020
The course is a good match for me, I know the concepts at a basic level, but never took the time to practice.
April 25, 2020
I have been self-teaching touch tying for a while but didn't think it can be so easy after learning this course. It has helped enormously. I am not much efficient and faster.
April 23, 2020
I really enjoyed this course. I will have to practise a lot to get it to the level i would like to achieve of course, but practise makes perfect. The teacher was very good, spoke very clearly and when i asked questions he replied very quickly and was very helpful. An easy 5 stars :)
