It's a time taking job to type so much in discussions in mylot. Not only here anywhere in any forum I have to type much. I have a typing speed about 30 wpm. I think it's not at par. What about yours? If you have an idea about some good site providing online training to improve typing speed on computers, please share it. I want to increase the speed of typing and too with less errors.

If you want to learn typing the fun way, you should download typershark. It’s a game and you can also learn how to type fast. I’ve played it like crazy and I went from 50wpm to 75wpm. Here's the link: http://get.games.yahoo.com/proddesc?gamekey=typershark You don't need to buy the game because there's an online version. Type away!

The best site that I found was http://www.customtyping.com I used it to generally refresh my skills and it definately worked for me. They give you a month free to try and then it's 6.00 a month if you decide to continue. Hope this was helpful.

for me, i think internet chatting is the best way to improve your typing skill. and maybe you can do some exercise by typing a text and see how long you can complete it without any typing errors.

I improved my typing speed in a very fun way. There is this game the typer shark from gamehouse that allows you to practice your typing and having a good time also because they designed it like a game. It feels good whenever I progress from one level to another. Hope you could try it out and see what it can do for you.

To improve your typing skill,you must train to NOT see the character on your keyboard. You can try the website www.tenthumbtyping.com to improve your typing skill.I think practice make perfect is true, try your best!

it is good for you to have recognized that there is a need to increase your typing speed. by this time, i am sure that some friends have already given you the proper sites to go to. you will have noticed, that the longer you are at the keyboard, the more errors that you commit. to avoid this, there are some exercises which you will have to do involving your fingers, hands and eyes. remember to do the exercises every thrity minutes, more or less.
