Keyboarding Skills for the New GED

Those taking the new GED tests will need to have adequate keyboarding skills.  From what I have heard, a GED student will need to be able to type 25 - 30 words per minute to have a better chance of success.  While that doesn't sound like a lot.... for an adult who has had little typing experience, it can be a road block to getting the GED credential.

As a basic skills and GED instructor, I have found that the sooner you get these adults typing the better.  There are many sites on the internet, but I like the following two the best.  And the best part is that they are both free!
