In the early days of the personal computer, one Mavis Beacon lead the way in preparing young and old alike in the ways of typing quickly and without needless error. It turns out there was no Mavis Beacon, much to the dismay of many devoted fans. Fortunately, for those persons who are looking to the web for a helpful typing course, there is Peter Hudson’s helpful site. As Hudson describes the site, it’s a place for “beginning typists and frustrated hunt-and-peckers who want to move from four-finger typing to full-blown touch typing.” The site begins with a number of preliminary overviews, including sections on typing ergonomics and general principles of typing. After considering these sections, visitors can move straight into the lessons, which deal with the concept of home row, the numbers row, and of course, the top row, which contains that magical combination of QWERT. Overall, a very useful site, and one that many beginning typists will want to visit several times.
