4.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, May 7, 2009
This review is from: Gregg College Keyboarding & Document Processing (GDP), Word 2007 Update, Kit 1, Lesson 1-60 w/Home Software 2.0 (Paperback)
I recently enrolled at a local technical college and this is the textbook for one of my required courses. I wasn't sure how this book was going to help me because I'm already proficient in typing. I do, however, think that this book is excellent for those who have no experience with keyboarding / typing. The instructions are simple and straightforward. The software program that is used is simple and easy to install.

This book is geared to increase your ability to type using the "touch" method. If you're a hunt & peck typist this book will help you learn how to type without having to look at your fingers all of the time. There is ample room for practice and the lessons encourage you to improve both speed and accuracy.

The only thing I don't like about this book and software are the "Paced" practices. It is very easy to get locked into them in a seeminly neverending loop. If you get caught in one just remember that you can always go back to the lesson menu and go forward. You'll have more of the paced practices in later lessons.

Overall I think this is a good textbook for the beginning typist to learn the touch method and improve speed and accuracy.

I'm am like you in that I already know how to type, more or less. Is this good for learning how to create different documents in Word?
