Truly terrible. Don't get it. I foolishly thought this was going to be an upgrade from the 2011 Ultimate Edition. But it's a huge downgrade

This version lacks the typing "games" which you may remember and be likely wanting to nostalgically revisit.

Alternatively, if you're an experienced typist or even proficient player of video games you'll set your standard assessment level to somewhere around 85wpm with 99% accuracy. This translates into the impish Mavis demanding from you a 91wpm with 98% accuracy for a "passing" grade on the application's series of exams.

I suppose if you've any children or family members who share your account with you, the application could prove useful. However, I'd guess that for many of us, we're quite fine and dandy without the aid of Ms. Beacon.

Requires an installation of Apple's Quicktime.

Overpriced. In just the first 5 minutes of use it is clear that this is awkwardly implemented software. Its look and feel is very primitive as though it was designed for Win95 and never migrated to later Win versions. When it starts it insists on opening up in full screen mode (there is no control for this). You are required to install Quicktime 7 to run the software to view the over voiced animations (no actual videos so far). There is no pause for the audio or video. If while a video is playing you change focus to another window the audio will be chopped (but not the video) so you have to restart the video. No doubt, every game on steam is considerably more complex yet better written and more bug free than MBTTFE. While I am glad that Steam is providing software titles like this, I wish another typing title had been chosen. Considering the price I can not recommend MBTTFE.

Great for helping your typing skills in terms of speed and accuracy. Includes a bunch of tests and evaluations that monitors your typing habits, and offers helpful hints or solutions to correct or adjust your keyboarding posture. If you're in a job, or looking for a job where you're sitting at a desk and using the computer most of the time then this software is more than worth it to aid you in your quest for keyboarding domination!
