2.0 out of 5 stars Claims to be for children... June 23, 2002
I bought this based upon its high review rating and its claim to be for children. It does have 8 games. However, it does not provide lessons at a truly beginner level. It's first "beginner" lesson assumes you have already had practice with the "asdfgjkl;" keys. Learning these 8 keys in the same single lesson is too much for your average 11 and under child. After having done some more research, it looks like "Typing Pal Junior" is a better program for beginning children. It teaches two keys at a time, starting with the "fj" keys. It also has dictation practice, in the form of stories you have to type as the computer dictates them to you. This provides the added benefit of spelling practice for your child. It only has two games, but the dictated stories make up for it.
My children may eventually use Typing Tutor 10, but only after they have worked with Typing Pal Junior for awhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific June 11, 2001
Verified Purchase
Members of our family (children and adults) have used this product for several versions-- 4.0, 6.0 and now version 10. It's always been easy to use, and the student quickly gains speed, accuracy and confidence. Our 11-yr-old son will use it this summer to help with middle school. The games will hold his interest. The music playing in the background is an effective way to help the typist maintain a consist fluid rhythm.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Competition October 30, 2001
By A Customer
No need to search for a more perfect typing program -- this is it! Mavis Beacon, et al, can not compare - I know, I've tried it. In fact, TT10 is first-rate b/c it doesn't skip a beat. If offers every possible component to make the child/adult student feel comfortable with the learning process, as well as, confident with the outcome of it. It is very well organized, direct, and lots of fun, i.e., it includes an optional & varied music selection to accompany your busy fingers along the way. BY FAR, THE BEST PROGRAM ON THE MARKET!

Typing Tutor 10 is an excellent program for kids and adults of all ages to practice thier skill levels in typing. It has 8 games that are very addicting to help you type faster. It is very challenging and you want to excel in your typing word score everyday. You can type segments of books or magazine articles geered to your talents and skills. This program is worth purchasing and is absolutely the best money spent for learning keyboard skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for adults new to the use of a computer keyboard December 10, 2001
Typing Tutor 10 is an educational CD-ROM software hallmarked by easy-to-use lessons complete with keyboard and handguides, split screens, backgrounds, music, and web-like navigation. The program introduces beginning students to the keyboard and the Internet. They learn to type the keyboard and numeric pad characters using the traditional "Home Row Method", as well as become familiar with both the look and feel of email and Internet sites. As they advance, students increase their confidence and dexterity with customized lessons and challenging games, all enhanced with animation and rewarding interactive feedback to motivate them to build their skills and advance at a rapid pace. In addition to classroom instructional use, Typing Tutor 10 is also ideal for adults new to the use of a computer keyboard and needing to acquire competency and confidence in its use for their computer programs, projects, and usages.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Instructional Program November 18, 2001
By LC+KC
Verified Purchase
Loved the music selection, loved the selection of games, the font size was readable and clear -- this program is much better the Mavis Beacon program I tried.
However, the software would 'hang' during the games. It indicates ME operation, but the packaging indicates Windows 95/98. I was advised to try anyway. If you have 95/98, then this is a wonderful program. The games are great. My favorites were the Shopping Cart, Letter Invaders, and Cricket. Letter Invaders I could beat (until the software hung), but the Crickets got me every time. I liked being beat - I'm a skilled typist of avg. 63wpm. Gave me accuracy to aspire to!
I'll be waiting for the next version (I hope there is one) to see if it runs more efficiently with Windows ME.
