Tripping Out

Key Punching

With your own business, you're not only your own boss, but also your own secretary--so even if you made it through college using the hunt-and-peck method of typing, now's the time to learn the real deal. Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing 9 is the world's bestselling typing program for a reason: It customizes itself to every person it teaches. Lessons begin only after the program diagnoses your personal typing strengths, weaknesses and skill level, and determines whether you're a kid, teen or adult. Onscreen hands demonstrate correct form for every keystroke. Eight games help you build your typing speed, accuracy and rhythm. There's even a 25-minute video on ergonomic tips for developing safer and more comfortable keyboard habits.
