Structure of All the Right Type

Tips for Success

 exit / pause / return to campus / fireworks / red tiles / silver result boxes / fingers show cumlative errors/


Your judgement-

        redo lessons if not desired result/ might tell you to redo but if in parameters go on/Accuracy vs.WPM/ Speed             trade off vs. making corrections all the time.
