Editors' review

Despite a couple of issues, this tutorial program provides some helpful tools for honing your typing skills. MaxType Pro offers Lesson, Extreme Typing, Problem Symbols, Network Challenge, Typing Test, and Exam modes. To start the tutorials, you must either go through the menu items or complete a user profile, rather than click on the deceptive icons that are part of the default background image. Extreme lets you practice your keyboard skills by typing song lyrics, articles, or your own TXT files in competition with a computer opponent. The typing pane shows a virtual keyboard and highlights the keys as you hit them. The program keeps statistics on your speed and typical mistypes so you can see what you should work on.

One thing we noticed was some amusing typos, as well as bad grammar in some of the instructions. In spite of these small errors, MaxType Pro undoubtably will help people who want to learn typing from scratch or improve their skills overall.

    "I strongly recommend this program because IT WORKS!"

    January 19, 2010   |   By ProTypist

    Version: MaxType Pro Typing Tutor 2.8.31

    Pros

    + Received registration keys and support in 24 hours
    + Lessons mode makes the process of learning interesting and exciting
    + Extreme typing is unforgettable :-)
    + It's the ONLY program with Network typing mode!
    + Nice looking typing reports!

    Cons

    It's a pity that this program is for Windows platform only because we wish to use it to train Mac and Unix users typing skills.

    Summary

    Being a university tutor I use MaxType in a classroom of the State University to train students typing skills. It's the best program for this purposes! The course lasts for 2 monthes twice a week. This time is more than enough to develop touch typing skill with speed more than 250 symbols per second and excellent accuracy. I think MaxType has everything you need to develop typing skills - no matter where you are, at home or in a school. It has 6 different typing modes including Lessons, Extreme typing, Typing Test, Network typing etc.

    "NEVER RECEIVED ACCESS TO FULL PROGRAM AFTER PAYING!!"

    December 03, 2009   |   By MizComputerTeacher

    Version: MaxType Pro Typing Tutor 2.8.31

    Pros

    It's a good program that I enjoyed using and my students enjoyed learning on.

    Cons

    After paying for full access on 2 computers (almost $40.00), our computer center never received the necessary passwords. All 3 emails requesting the password went unanswered.

    BEWARE if you decide to purchase the full version of this product!!

    Summary

    I would CAUTION anyone who decides to purchase the full version of this product to BEWARE!!

    You may end up like we did with no usable password and several unanswered emails asking for a password to enable us to use the product we purchased.

    "Really nice Typing Tutor"

    March 09, 2006   |   By Mustang17

    Version: MaxType Pro Typing Tutor 2.8.5

    Pros

    I found this program better than all other I've tried last month (TypingMaster, Key Advantage, etc. ). It REALLY teaches to touch-type. Extreme mode helped me to increase typing speed up to 300 CPS.

    Cons

    Low price for professional program :-)
