I was concerned so I got one of those Meavis Beacon programs.After some practice I am upto 25 wpm. Is there some minimum that I am going to have to work upto. I am worried about exams. I think I read somewhere that an exam could be like 4-8 hours and an answer could be like 10-20 pages. I remember typing a philosophy paper once and it took me a couple of days for 10 pages. My hands were hurting worse than third grade piano lessons.
What is the best software?
I think time spent improving your typing speed before school starts is probably well spent. If you can't touch type (types without looking at the keys), you should try to get there before school starts.
