    Anyone know of a good website/program that aids in improving your typing speed? (i.e. (interactive) tutorials)

    And no, this isn't for me.

    Thanks!

    Here's a classic. It should help your typing speed and keyboard memory.

    There was a bunch of these I did in elementary school but I can't quite remember them. And that was mostly "home row learning" type of stuff (I still don't use the home row when I type).

    Like Guildy said, The Typing of the Dead is a good program. I used it when I was younger.

    I can't find a link, but it's an old DOS application called TME (Typing Made Easy). It's made by QED Information Sciences. We used it briefly in my programming class to improve on our typing speed, as well as accuracy. It's actually a really good program, with different levels of skill, typing drills, etc...It sounds weird describing all of that, since the program isn't for you.

    On some of the game-type links people posted, I got anywhere between 50 and 72 wpm. It's annoying that when you're being tested is when you can't type properly as much as normal. [​IMG] Another point is that usually I glance at the keys and what I'm saying is in my head. In those tests I need to look at the screen more.
