Homeschool Specialist Review
Typing Instructor Platinum comes with 20+ lesson plans, but you also have the option to create customized lessons, complete with your own music! Using repetitive keystrokes to help build finger memory, you'll work through lessons and tests to achieve your words-per-minute and accuracy goals. The Dynamic Learning feature analyzes your work and creates specific lessons to help you improve on any weaknesses you may have. You'll be able to view the results of each lesson using graphs and charts that will show results for each finger, row, key, or hand.
In addition to the lessons and tests, you'll practice using various magazine articles. Whether you're interested in sports, classic literature, or history, you'll be able to find something interesting to learn about while practicing your typing skills.
And then there are the games. Racing games, adventure games, arcade games . . . all help create a fun and exciting learning experience. Use your spaceship to clean up space debris in "Flotsam Fighter," and explore ancient tombs to search for keys, coins, and jewels in "Tomb Typer." Type the words as fast as you can to stay away from the giant lobster in "Sea Creatures," and improve your accuracy as you race up the side of a mountain in "Cliffhanger."
This was the one of the first typing programs I used, and I loved it. Part of my job includes answering e-mails, so it's certainly helped my speed and efficiency at work. No matter your age, this program will give you the necessary means to improve your typing skills. 480MB RAM; Windows 00/XP/Vista/7, Macintosh OS X/10.4 or higher. From Individual Software.

Normally they become bored, but now they ask to work on the program longer because of how much they enjoy the program while they are learning to type.

friend of JesusAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Watch what you buyJuly 14, 2013friend of JesusAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1It is hard to believe that this is sold from a Christian site. We ordered this because found it on this site, and we felt like it would be something helpful in teaching our daughters to type. But when you need assistance with typing, there is a character called "Tiki" in which you enter a room that almost feels like you are talking with an idol. If you look up the word "tiki" in the dictionary one definition says, "a wood or stone image of a Polynesian god". This is exactly what is portrayed. Not only this, but as a parent trying to watch what our daughters read, one of the books on the island is Dracula.
Debbie4 Stars Out Of 5Activation Code a PainJune 4, 2013DebbieQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Although the product was good and my son loves it, we add so much problems with the activation code that we gave up and put the game on a separate computer. Had we have known the problems we were going to have with the activation code, I probably would not have bought the program.
