Thanks to its helpful tutorials, KP Typing Tutor let you practice typing groups of letters and sentences, as well as get familiar with key positions on your computer's keyboard.

This program is a great solution for busy professionals who never took a typing class in school. KP Typing Tutor is easy to use for adults and children, and there is a link to a Help Web site should you have any questions. We liked how the program offers different types of practice and instruction. You can practice typing anything from simple groups of letters to whole paragraphs. There is even a little game that you can play where you try to type words that float down from the top of the window as fast as you can before they hit the bottom. The game makes the monotonous activity of typing practice fun.

KP Typing Tutor's only drawback is that it does not install or uninstall cleanly. When installing the program, Desktop and Quick Launch icons, and bundled applications were added without asking. Icons and folders also had to be manually removed after uninstalling the program. However, we still found KP Typing Tutor to be a great program for practicing and improving your typing skills.
