When I learned to touch type, I used a book that was just a series of
drills.  I would type
a aa aaa a aa aaa s ss sss s ss sss d dd ddd d dd ddd f ff fff
aj ak al a; aj ak al a; sj sk sl s; sj sk sl s;

It was a big book, but when I was done I was able to touch type.

The same type of drill book for SignWriter would be very interesting.  Is
this what your class is like?

Anyone have any thought on creating a book like this?  It would be a
tremendous resource.
