| Aug. 27
| PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not look at your keys while typing. Keep your eyes on the screen or textbook, it may be slower at first but you will improve much faster if you DO NOT look at your keys (looking at your keys becomes a hard habit to break).
In your textbook read the Introduction to the Student beginning on page xxi, for a brief overview of the program and to become familiar with the format of the textbook. Pay special attention to “Typing Technique” to develop correct posture and position for keyboarding at the computer.
In your textbook look over the Reference Manual, pages R1 – R22. This section gives you an overview of the parts of a computer, an illustration of the computer keyboard, information on formatting business documents, examples and descriptions of proofreader’s marks, and punctuation and grammar rules. This is a great reference section for you to use as you learn how to keyboard!
Before beginning your lessons click the Part 1 tab (upper left of the screen) and read the on-screen tutorial, which provides an overview of how the Gregg (GDP) keyboarding software works. Click the NEXT button on the lower right corner of the screen. Follow your assignment sheet closely to know which Lessons to complete. Many times, you will be instructed to OMIT a lesson or only do part of a lesson.Complete your registration at this site:
