Q: I've never been a fast or efficient typist, especially since switching over to a new keyboard with the thinner and lower keys recently (my son said to call them "chiclets"). Is there any instructional aids or tips to help me improve my typing skills you can recommend?

A budget conscious option: TypingWeb.com, a free online browser-based system designed for all ages and skill levels. There's also Typing Trainer for Windows users, which claims their software can boost typing efficiency in just 45 minutes with a free download.
