Do you know how fast can you type? or how many words per minute can you type (wpm)? I think I can type 40 wpm, this is because I took typing lessons a long time ago. That typing lesson stuck with me. How about you?

I am sure how fast I can type, I think I can't type much fast, I wish to get a good speed in typing because i would make more on mylot, I know people how is really fast typing and they really good on it, I have heard that the qwerty keyboard was make for a low speed in typing because the old machine would damage if a secretary type so fast, but all the computer are coming with it because, it is very popular and would be more expensive to change to another system, I have took some lesson on my hight school and I improve a lot but I have still watching the keyboard something, I don't like the people that only use two or three fingers to type, it is really annoying and look like they never have go to a school, I have some friend that type like that, and they think that don't need to learn to type good.

I never took typing lesson but I know that I type so fast. It is because of the experience I had in a law firm that I have to finish two or three pleadings a day.

30 - 35 words per minute with 80 -90% accuracy. But it also depends on my moods. I don't use all my fingers in typing that's why Im not that fast.

Im a fast typer but im not sure how many words i can type per minute, maybe 35-40 words i guess. I can type without looking at the keyboard at all now though with few errors once i get going.
