So I really want to learn to touch type. Right now I can type fairly quickly but I do so mainly using 5 fingers. I want to learn to touch type and do so as fast as I can read.
I'm currently using this - http://www.typing-lessons.org/lesson_1.html
1- For the ultra fast typists out there; how did you learn? How long did it take?
2- I spend a lot of time of the computer typing; as i'm learning should I try and always use proper technique? I find it SO difficult as using proper technique i'm about 15% as fast as using improper technique.
