Editors' Review

+

Rapid Typing Tutor helps you improve your typing speed through a variety of exercises designed for users of all different skill levels. You can start at any level you feel comfortable with, and even if you have no experience typing at all, you'll quickly gain familiarity with the keyboard using this program.

Pros

Program flexibility: This program presents lessons categorized from Beginner to Advanced, but it also lets you choose where to start and what lessons you'd like to repeat. If you're just starting out, you can complete the lessons in order and build on what you learned in each. But if you already have some experience, you can experiment with different levels until you find the one that challenges you and helps you improve your skills.

Report options: Each time you complete a lesson, you'll see a report detailing your performance. Default report categories include Words per Minute, Accuracy %, and Time Out, but you can also make your own selections to suit your specific needs and goals. Other criteria available for reports are Characters per Minute, Words per Second, and Characters per Second, among others.

Cons

Typos and grammar: When you get up to the Advanced levels, the lessons are made up of paragraphs and passages for you to type. All of the passages we tested included both grammatical errors and typos, neither of which are terribly helpful when you're trying to learn to type properly. To complete the lesson satisfactorily, you need to replicate the passage, errors and all.

Bottom Line

Rapid Typing Tutor is a good option for people of all ages who are just learning to type. More advanced typists, however, aren't likely to get much benefit from the program. But it's still worth checking out to see if it's a good fit for you since it doesn't cost anything to download and use without limits.

Pros

Helped me a lot to learn touch typing!

No cons. But there is one funny thing. They have various stories that you could practice and one of them is called The Show Queen, but it supposed to be The Snow Queen lol I mean it supposed to teach you type properly and their exercise is mistyped. Not complaining just saying :)

"Complete with spyware"

July 15, 2012  |  By AlexisSince1984

 |  Version: Rapid Typing Tutor 4.6.3

Pros

None that I am aware of.

Cons

The copy I downloaded wanted to install something called the blekko search toolbar before it would let me install the typing software; I deleted the download instead.

Summary

Either it's infected or it forces you to install unadvertised spyware. Either way, avoid.
