74 wpm, 2 mistakes. That's pretty close. I got tested about 2 years ago, and it was around 75.

79wpm, 1 mistake.

That's shitty as hell. I think. I don't even know. Everyone says I'm a fast typer, but I don't even do it the "right" way, I pretty much just use my first two fingers.

85wpm, 5 mistakes. In my defense the left side of my desk under my keyboard is crowded.


I took it 4 more times and all were between 81-86wpm, best being 84 with 1 mistake.

Wow, some of you are amazing! I was just thinking about googling for a typing test to test my speed. On the first try, I got 84wpm, 1 mistake. After that, it was in the 70's with 2-5 mistakes. My daughter used to have a Timon & Pumba game that had a typing section/test in it. That was fun. I may try again later

Well. It's a good thing I don't make my living on this thing. However, I'm not quite as atrocious as I thought I would be -- 33 wpm with four mistakes. I really thought I wouldn't be over 20 wpm.


Of course, I had to try it again...and I got even worse. 28 wpm with 2 mistakes. If I try it many more times I swear I will be in the negative range...

Do I get an award for being the suckiest typist?

89 wpm 1 mistake

I remember thinking I'd never learn to type; but like GibsonGirl, an insane computer teacher forced me to learn.
