A guide on learning how to type
Step 1: Learn technique
Step 2: Practice speed
I had no idea how to type entering medical school. My peers we’re jamming out notes on their macbook like Billy Joel after 3 bottles of red. My roommate told me about this Keybr site. It adds one letter at a time, and as you get better scores it adds more letters. It’s pretty addicting. But it doesn’t really teach you proper technique. I googled lessons, and there were a bunch of sites like How To Type that illustrates which keys to hit with which finger. So I learned and spent 30 hours in the basement of the library tapping away. This is one of the most useful skills I’ve learned in grad school. I can’t believe I went through college without learning to type. Don’t make my mistake. Be better than me.
