FamilyPC, September 1996

"All in all, this program is the hands-down winner both for adults and older kids (nine and up). The CD has an excellent navigation system that lets you go directly to lessons and tests, progress reports, games, book excerpts, tutor tips, or video clips.

"Once you've mastered a few typing basics, practice your newfound skills with one of three games. Letter Invaders is particulary fun: Words fall from the sky at a faster and faster rate - your job is to type them before they hit the ground. For literary fans, the Bookshelf section offers more than 100 book excerpts as practice material. It also has a special dictation feature, in which you type passages as they're read to you - excellent practice if you paln to take notes on your laptop in class or meetings."
