Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The most significant strengths of MicroType are the order and organization of the lessons (I like one left hand and one right hand key in each lesson), some of the games (specifically Key-A-Shot and Connect It), the movies, the class preference choices (I like the option of changing between single and double spacing in timings, in the teacher utility section, and the use of color graphics in the lessons."

"I do believe that MicroType is a great supplement to the textbook activities. I have always felt that South-Western Publishing Company has offered great textbooks and supplementary materials in the business education field. I think South-Western is the leader in keyboarding instruction materials."
