CNET Editors' reviewWhile this program should help move you from the world of hunt-and-peck to one of fluid fingers, a limited trial period and a poor interface detract from its overall goal. Typing Tutorial installs quickly and without much ado. The program begins by asking you to fill in a few personal items; the most important option here is the default language. If your native tongue is German, you'll be fine, but if it isn't (and you have no interest in mastering a German keyboard) be sure to choose a language that suits you. A very basic, almost rudimentary interface is uninspiring, but the essential elements of each exercise are solid. Statistics alongside each exercise monitor your typing "rhythm," as well as identify the letters you miss often. We like that you can download a TXT file to use as practice as well. The biggest problem we found is with the trial limitation. Only two minutes for every test really isn't sufficient time to bang on the keys. Overall, while Typing Tutorial has the tests to push you toward typing nirvana, it doesn't have the looks to keep you interested along the way.

"Dangerous! Download with caution"
Version: Typing Tutorial 4.39
I downloaded this program with the intent to help my son with his typing. After installing the program and testing it myself, I decided it wasn't what I was looking for, and that the 1:40 time limit on the demo was a little short. Running the uninstall program several errors popped up then my computer froze. After restarting the windows 98 setup appeared and asked for the CD key, etc... The uninstall program had caused irreparable damage to my system registry. Lucky enough windows automatically made backups of the registry and I was able to sucessfully restore one from 2 days ago. If not for that I wouldn't be able to be here warning the rest of you. If you want to try this program make sure you have a backup of your registry.
