I took a keyboarding class when I was still in high school (many, MANY moons ago) and I can honestly say it's the only useful thing I learned in all my years there.

Perhaps we should start a sucky typists support group.

Typically, I type between 70-75 words per minute maybe more.

But on this test I did horrible.

55 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?


i thought i was the suckiest!

74wpm, 1 mistake. i think i could have typed faster if i'd had a printout on a stand to read from at my side rather than typing off the computer screen.
i can type without looking too

haha yes
but the "no mistakes" might be a little inaccurate, I had to backspace and fix a few... but still got the 110 in the end

Make that zero mistakes. The computer was wrong. There was a typo in the Lord of the Rings selection they had me copy.

I did it several more times this evening. 84 wpm, twice with 1 error each time. Then the rest of the night I was somewhere in the 70s. I'm in awe of Kristie and those over 100 wpm

91 WPM, no mistakes. Not bad! anitram, I totally agree with you, the touch typing class from high school (which I did in French no less so I had accents to contend with) was the most useful class I ever took. I never look at the keyboard. Remember all those rows of clattering typewriters? Actually, maybe you took typing on a computer. I am showing my age!

I can't believe how some of you think you're doing bad with about 75 as i only got 22

And 110!!!!

If i could type at either of those speeds i'd be laughing!
