According to my last typing exam and this dates back quite to some years ago I had about 35 words per minute. I was never a touch typist but at least I was happy with my speed. How much fast do you type?

I am a pretty good typer even though I never typed for many years since I worked in an office. My skills got worse as the years went by but now that I am a member with mylot my skills have improved greatly. I can now type again without looking at the keys and just looking at the screen. I don't make very many mistakes anymore when I am typing so I don't waste very much time correcting errors. I think I can probably type about 60 words a minute now. I know I used to be able to type about 80 words a minute when I was doing a lot of typing but since I don't work in an office anymore I am not as quick as I used to be. I typed this response in about two minutes as I had to think first about what I am typing and saying. But I am pretty quick, all the same. I love to type and that is one of the reasons why I love being a member with mylot.

i found a site that gives you a typing test online. you just type a paragraph they give you and they tell you how fast you did it. my average was 57 words per minute. if i'm typing my own words i type faster than that. its harder when you have to read and type it.

i think im between 35-40wpm.. i was mad though because i cannot type any faster than 40 ever and i was studying to be a medical transcriptionist and my school said 80 or you cant do it.. and i found out half way through the course so i ended up dropping out.. i was having really bad coordination probs then from other things and i still had to pay

It's a very long time since I did a typing exam and at the time I had forty words per minute. That's not to say that there wasn't some typos in it. Now I would say that I am down to about twenty words per minute and I always have to go back and correct my typos. I am getting worse by the day.

When I learned to type in High School (before computers were so widely used) I took 2 years of Typing Class.We used the IBM typewriters with the "ball" printer (the "latest" at the time) I could type 90wpm on my fastest timed test! I'm out of practice and I have no idea how many I can type now. I'm much older and also I broke my left hand last year. I'm sure that has slowed me down too.

Well, the last time I checked, my word per minute was 71 and very little errors. I was able to hone my talent in typing through my current job. I even learned how to use the home keys without looking at the keyboard. Lol.

I dint go to any typing class but by the regular use of computer I think I must be typing at least 30 words per minute. I usually text fast. Since I write a blog I know my keys better now.. :) The color of my keyboard also looks different.. Well by seeing the keyboard I can type a minimum of 30 words per minute. By seeing the screen I can type only a minimum of 15 words per minute..

Hi I don't know how fast I type but before I typed like 45 words per minute but now it depends on the mood. But If we want to earn more we have to type fast to earn more, that's the easiest way to earn.
