Join Anson Alexander for an in-depth discussion in this video Final practice assessment, part of Learning Typing (2014).
- Once you know which finger is used to type each key,…practice is the primary way to improve your typing skills.…Remember to always be conscious…of which finger you're using to type each key,…and every time you need to type,…use that as an opportunity to improve your skills.…The more you type, the more comfortable you'll become…and the more muscle memory you'll build.…When you've completed all of the keyboarding lessons…and practice modules,…it's time to re-take the typing assessment…that I mentioned in the beginning of the course.…
Remember, if you've been working…on correcting bad habits with this course,…your typing speed may actually decrease in the short-term.…But, once you've re-created new muscle memories,…your speed and efficiency should start increasing.…Compare your score from before taking the course…to your score after taking the course.…There are also a number…of free typing games available online…for you to practice your keyboarding skills.…My favorite is a version of Space Invaders.…It's available at freetypinggame.net,…
