1-0 out of 5 stars Mac OSX in Classic mode only
If you want to run on a mac, this product requires OS9 or "Classic" mode under OSX.As a result it will NOT run on a new intel mac.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good
Although my 6 year old son does not have the focus to put his fingers in the correct places he likes to play the games and is learning where the letters are just by searching for them

1-0 out of 5 stars OS X
I bought this product in July and can't get it to work with OS X. The computer wants to launch OS9 every time. A big disappointment and a waste of money.

Editorial 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 Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Why no WinXP upgrade???
I have never seen a typing tutor program that kids go nuts for like Slam Dunk.It does a great job of actually feeling like a computer game, as opposed to many educational software items where the "game" aspect feels like an excuse to learn stuff.I've seen kids from third grade through seventh really love it.BUT...it does not work with WinXP!!!!!I don't know what Creative Wonders has not offered a new version, but I wish they would.Nevertheless, if you have a MAC or an older version of Windows, I heartily recommend this software.

1-0 out of 5 stars No Longer Supported
LearningCo no longer supports this software according to their website.I could not get this software to install on a DELL Windows XP machine.

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. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST!!!
I am 16 years old now.I use Mavis Beacon when i was about 9 for a few months.I felt like it wasn't working so i stopped and perodically did it once in a while until i was 10 or 11.I am now in the 10th grade.I have never taken a computer class or typing class in school and I type at 56 adjust words per minute.People ask me how i learned to type as fast as i do at a young age.When i was in the 6th grade i typed at about 40 adjust wpm.which is still pretty good!It may seem like it's not working but in the long run you'll start to type while watching tv etc.As a matter of fact, I'm looking at the tv right now as I type this review. lol!This program is GREAT! It really works, especially for younger kids.It's not hard at ALL and has really great games.It may be a challenge at first but soon you'll be typing much faster than when you start to use it.I HIGHLY recommend this program. It is VERY good!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars learn to touch-type....
It's fun....i've gotten almost up to the hardest level of the touch-typing. There are many games that help you learn to touch-type, yet they are fun. There are many courses to go through, and you have to always sign in as a WHATEVER user. Don't be fooled by its' cover, it looks wierd,but once you start typing, you can't stop!!!!

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 usesonly half of the memory, I'd keep on searching. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't get it to work
I threw it in the trash.Could not get it to work on Mac Os X.What a waste of shipping $!!!

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.1-0 out of 5 stars Window 2000 incompatibility

5-0 out of 5 stars I was amazed
I could not typif my life depended on it before I got this prodect but it taught me how to typ in a fun way and I went from novice to advaced withen a year but keep in mind that I used this program very spare seced of my time

1-0 out of 5 stars Jumpstart typing is not for beginners
I ordered jumpstart typing to teach my child to type.It seems it is only for practice.Immediately they have your child practice combinations of letters, and never introduce them one at a time.The children can not access the games until they demonstrate a certain level of competancy (they need to type letter combinations over and over- even I was bored and I can type.) I thought the games were supposed to help them learn.I am very disappointed in this software and do not recommend it to anyone

2-0 out of 5 stars Jumpstart Typing
I wish to add to my review of Nov. 4: the letters are not only tiny, but also very difficult to distinguish due to the font used in the program. I don't believe it is possible to get around this, but if there is a way, please post it here!!Read more
