Typing Basics - The Home Keys
Well, let's get started. The center of all that you do on a standard keyboard is the row of keys starting with the letter "a" and ending with the apostrophe. This row forms the center of the three rows of letters, and the keys in this row are known as the "home keys". So, it is only fitting that we begin the learning process by becoming more comfortable with this row of keys. It is now time to proceed to your first exercise in typing. For this exercise, as well as many other exercises in this typing course, you will be using our "exercises in typing" typing practice program. Since this is the first exercise you will be doing on this program let me take a moment to explain how it works. Each lesson has three lines to give practice with some of the new material being taught in that lesson. Simply select the practice line that you would like to type and press the "begin practice session" button. You are welcome to repeat each line as many times as you need to. Please review each line until you feel comfortable with it. So, go ahead and give it a try. Click on the link below and try the three lines for lesson one. Go over each line several times until you are comfortable with what it has for you, then go on to the next line for more practice. When you have completed all three lines click on the link at the bottom of the exercise program to go on to lesson 2.
