4-0 out of 5 stars Jumpstart Advanced toddler
We bought this as a Christmas present for our son that just turned 2. We were looking for an educational computer game for him and we already had Reader Rabbit Toddler (which he loves). When I first started Jumpstart Adv. Toddler I thought it was way too simple, then I discovered that most activities have 2 levels. Level 1 is pretty basic and doesn't require the kids to do a whole lot...my son was very bored with this. Level 2 is much better...in fact it is more advanced than Reader Rabbit. Most of the activities do not require toddlers to click on the mouse, but if you can click it goes faster. I was surprised by how fast my son figured out the activities. He can do most everything by himself, but he still needs me to help him navigate some. This package comes with 3 cd's - school time, song time and art time. THe song time cd has several fun songs that he just loves. Overall I really like this game and have found it to be very educational. As soon as my son has mastered clicking the mouse we will be getting the preschool version.

4-0 out of 5 stars JumpStart Spanish a winner
My 5 year old loves her new JumpStart Spanish program. She has learned to count in spanish and her colors so far. Very fun games and rewards. She is really picking things up fast. We have not had any real computer problems, it has locked up once, but that has happened on other software as well. The sound works well. For the price I would recommend this as a beginning spanish program.

5-0 out of 5 stars My daughter simply loves it!!!!
My 2 year old loves this set of CDs. I found that it reinforces all the things we are teaching her.... shapes, colors, numbers the ABC. The duck that sings is very sweet to their ear. I found it sooo great I am buying it for my daughter's school so the other kids can benefit as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Jump Start 4TH GRADE ADVANCED
I rented this software from the Library. It is a 3 disc program. My 3rd grader (almost 4th grader) loves the Ultimate Field Trips and Mystery Club volume 3. The fundamentals disc is a little too hard for her right now, so it is challenging. I played it because it looked fun and it was fun for me to play. I love the "mystery" tone of the software. I like these programs because there are fun games that do not get boring, and while your kids are playing the games, they are also learning a lot. I am going to purchase this software and the 3rd grade ADVANCED program so my child can review through the summer. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but a memory hog
This typing tool is useful for novice typists who want a quick, but fun way to improvise and increase their technical skills on the computer keyboard. The only problem that this program takes up most of the memory and even if I got the computer which has a whopping heap of unused memory, Mavis Beacons gobbles it eventually as if it is hungry for more. The graphic, when used on the older computer is slow and cumbersome, but if you want to find a better typing software that uses only half of the memory, I'd keep on searching.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent program to learn to type with
About three or four years ago, my parents forced me to sit down and work with this program until I could type fast. Thank goodness they did! Now I enjoy computer programming, creative writing, and surfing the Internet at a much faster speed.

I don't have the speed of a professional typist, obviously, but including errors my typing speed is on average over one hundred words per minute. Parents - if you want to help your kids out, get them this or a later version of this program. I'm not in high school yet, but I'm already enjoying the benefits of getting my work done well and efficiently.

5-0 out of 5 stars It reminds me...
about 7 years ago while I was a junior high school student, I learned to type using this software (the earlier version, of course) on my Apple Performa 580.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Except....
This is generally a great program. The Games are fun (especially the road race). What I don't like about it is that in this one exercise where you're supposed to type in time with a metronome, the metronome is completly off beat with the music that plays! it makes it very hard to keep time with the metronome and not the music! ...

Amazon.com Review

Computers may have done away with ribbons, correction tape, and manual carriage returns, but let's face it--you still gotta type. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a slightly embarrassed long-time hunt-and-pecker, Slam Dunk Typing will have you clicking and clacking confidently in no time. Best of all, its basketball-themed typing games are fun! But lest your game of hoops become a game of oops, you first need to practice with some drills. Fortunately, these aren't as dreary as you might think: there's a passing drill that gets your fingers accustomed to the locations of letters on the keyboard, a slam-dunk contest in which your typing speed dictates the style and success of the dunk, and a Missile Command-like game in which deadly "word basketballs" rain down on the court--unless your quick and nimble fingers can stop them by typing the word and blasting them out of the arena. OK, so it's not exactly NBA Live 2000, but at least you'll learn how to type. The drills can get a little repetitive, but a little repetition is a good thing here, especially if you're trying to master the delicate art of not looking down at the keyboard as you type. So bring your A game, but don't forget to bring your Q, W, E, R, T, and Y games, too. --Steve Landau ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars fun for me
I am 13 and this is awesome!! Fun to learn from. It helps you to discover problem keys, prompts you to work on them and is very, very fun to play. It feels like a game rather than a lesson.

5-0 out of 5 stars My son loves it!
My 12 year old son loves this game. He "plays" it more like a game than as homework. It is very well made, the instructions are clear and thorough and he has spent more time with than we asked him to! Much better than the boring typing class I took in high school, this will get him typing correctly in a few weeks time and in a very enjoyable format. If you have a basketball lover this is definitely the game for them! It starts out w/ the typical letter sequences like j-h or f-r but instead of just typing it forever, the game is set up in a few different formats.

In "passing" you type the letters that show and that passes the ball between players.

In the "game" scenario you type the letters to pass the ball and then every now and again a small screen pops up w/ a three letter word that you have to type in order to shoot or defend the ball! very fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome
My daughter only tried this once but it helps alot and she said "if you have children who realy like to type they should ask for it for x-mas, birthday, and/or pay for it them self!!!"

4-0 out of 5 stars Grrrrrrreat
Great fun- and learning how to type at the same time. If you want to learn how to type, but not get bored at the same time, try using "slam dunk typing" we used it at computer class at school. When she said it was time to leave, nobody wanted to go because they were having such a a great time. I reccomend it for people ages6 and up, but anyone can really use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars He shoots He Scores!
Slam Dunk Typing is a fun way to learn how to type if you like basketball. You start on the beginers level by just shooting simple baskets and then work your way up to playing in a real basketball game. It's having fun and learning how to type at the same time. Have fun! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an wonderful program for todays internet savy youth
Typing Tutor 10 is an excellent program for kids and adults of all ages to practice thier skill levels in typing. It has 8 games that are very addicting to help you type faster. It is very challenging and you want to excel in your typing word score everyday. You can type segments of books or magazine articles geered to your talents and skills. This program is worth purchasing and is absolutely the best money spent for learning keyboard skills.

2-0 out of 5 stars Claims to be for children...
I bought this based upon its high review rating and its claim to be for children. It does have 8 games. However, it does not provide lessons at a truly beginner level. It's first "beginner" lesson assumes you have already had practice with the "asdfgjkl;" keys. Learning these 8 keys in the same single lesson is too much for your average 11 and under child. After having done some more research, it looks like "Typing Pal Junior" is a better program for beginning children. It teaches two keys at a time, starting with the "fj" keys. It also has dictation practice, in the form of stories you have to type as the computer dictates them to you. This provides the added benefit of spelling practice for your child. It only has two games, but the dictated stories make up for it.

My children may eventually use Typing Tutor 10, but only after they have worked with Typing Pal Junior for awhile.

Beware: This product does not run on Windows 2000

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Training Program
TT10 is a simple and very effective training program. This program is user friendly, intuitive and a great tool for learning and improving touch typing. The colour scheme within the screens, graphics and font size are nice and the Navigation is simple and intuitive. I have not completly explored all the lessons but am very satisfied with the software and my progress so far. The games are funny and provide a good break. The product is marked for Win 95/98 on the package but I did not have any problems on Win ME so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ideal for adults new to the use of a computer keyboard
Typing Tutor 10 is an educational CD-ROM software hallmarked by easy-to-use lessons complete with keyboard and handguides, split screens, backgrounds, music, and web-like navigation. The program introduces beginning students to the keyboard and the Internet. They learn to type the keyboard and numeric pad characters using the traditional "Home Row Method", as well as become familiar with both the look and feel of email and Internet sites. As they advance, students increase their confidence and dexterity with customized lessons and challenging games, all enhanced with animation and rewarding interactive feedback to motivate them to build their skills and advance at a rapid pace. In addition to classroom instructional use, Typing Tutor 10 is also ideal for adults new to the use of a computer keyboard and needing to acquire competency and confidence in its use for their computer programs, projects, and usages. ...
