I have been using ktouch. I like it alot.
It keeps track of your speed, your accuracy. It has 27 levels to work your way up through. About the only thing it doesn't have is some tutorial videos like something you would get at best buy. But as long as you know to keep your fingers on the home keys this program will help you out. I took typing for one semester in seventh grade and I am 25 and it is all coming back to me. Try it out and let me know what you
