It's raining and I'm bored

I never took typing in school. I pretty much learned to type while using the computer. I always wondered how fast I was because sometimes I can really get going, others I hunt and peck. Frankly, I didn't care enough to go test myself until I came across this post. AHA - someone has done he work for me! WOOHOO, since I am in a testing mode, let's see how I did...

72 words

Touch Typing online



Is that good? I took it twice, the first time I got a 68 with 4 words wrong. Then I got this one, with 0 words wrong :) Not bad for someone who never learned the correct finger position. Certainly not 90+ but hey, could be worse. I love computers...hehe

More later...

That's a good rate! I took a typing test earlier this year and came up with 27 wpm (but no errors) My boss wasn't impressed though.

I just tried this and won't tell you how wonderfully well I did--don't want others to feel bad. Think I will try again.

That was cool! 77 on my first (and only) try with 0 mistakes. I could totally see myself getting addicted though. ;)

My husband type with just one finger and is pretty fast even so. I'm so glad I took typing in high school. It is one thing I do well, even years later.
