How well do you type?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I don't usually do the online game stuff, but this one was interesting.

Heads up: it's very annoying how it scrolls through the words but you'll pick it up. I got 67 wpm and to be honest was pretty happy. Keep in mind, this does not allow errors. you must back up and fix them or i'm sure everyone's score would be much higher.

I tried it a few times, my first one was 67, and after 2 more rounds, I was up to 90

I can't make it work. Last time I timed myself, though, I was at about 70 wpm.

I haven't tried that game but John recently took a typing course and it had a similar program that I practiced on. I was up to about 95 wpm as my highest.

Hey, my boyfriend just told me about this game several days ago, and so I started playing, and it was fun! It said my average was only like 46 wpm, but I won a few games and it said it was something like, 65 wpm in those games.

I'd be much faster if Molly would stop head-butting me & walking across the keyboard!

Me neither. It says "wait for the green light" and then sits there doing nothing.

I used to type at about 120 wpm, and the last time I took a test it was 70 something. Not sure what it is now. Probably pretty close to that, maybe even a bit better because I type quite a bit.

Try this link for an actual typing test.

I didn't do so well just now. Only 65 wpm with 91% accuracy.

on that one, i got this score: Net Speed: 48 WPM
(words/minute) Accuracy: 94% Gross Speed: 51 WPM
(words/minute)might get a different score w/a different selection, tho.

(words/minute) Accuracy: 100% Gross Speed: 57 WPM
(words/minute)

I thought I was a pretty quick typer, but I'm only 50 words a minute!

163 wpm I think I got lucky on that one.

I don't know about luck but that's a pretty incredible number! you should be proud.

You realize the fastest typest in the world averaged 170 WPM and peaked at 210 i think.

Hmmmm.... I would do one of these typing tests, but I don't want to embarrass myself!!!

68 wpm on the first try.

I have a practice program called Typing Tutor on my computer, I downloaded it when I was applying for a medical billing job that required 12,000 keystrokes an hour. I ended up averaging about 92 wpm and 16,000 keystrokes an hour with 99% accuracy. (Needless to say they hired me the next day )

This game is fun though!
