At IBM we recommend the following:

Use descriptive link text, not just "click here" to ensure that each link
makes sense when it is read out of context.

 Link text should be informative but not verbose. For example:
               To review this topic, return to Checkpoint 15
                                 instead of
                     To review this topic, click here.
