What's Your Speed?

This little challenge from Andrea was fun. Actually, it was quite sad. Actually, I should get an award for posting at all, because my typing is so bad that it takes me 3 times as long as everyone else! (How's that for looking on the bright side?!) Nope, I think the original evaluation is accurate...it's just sad. How about you?





Speed test

(And no cheating...first attempt only. Of course, these were the results for my first, second and third attempts, so good luck with cheating to begin with....)

(Amendment: I would like to say that my score went up to 59 words when I used a regular keyboard, instead of my laptop. That is all.)

I typed 70 words a minute. In highschool I typed ninety. I make more errors though than I should because I get going too fast! LOL! Too fun!

This laptop is harder to type on. I was in the 40's my first time, but over 60 with no errors the second time. I used to be 90-100 in high school and college as well. I may have to go try this on my son's keyboard.

And the old typing tests WERE regular sentences not just random words. I'd like to know how much faster I would be on a more normal paragraph.

Thanks for posting this. I took the test, too - what fun! I'm actually better now than when I was in college. Go figure.
