I have to take a typing test. How long has it been since you’ve taken one? How long has it been since you had to touch type?
I quickly realized how arcane this is. Nobody types like this anymore. If you need a chunk of test, you copy and paste it.
So, I decided to practice. Take something that you have never read before and type for 3 minutes. I suck.
I can get up to like 60 words a minute, with lots of mistakes. With just a couple of mistakes, I’m at 28 words a minute.
Go ahead, try it. Type something you have never read before for 3 minutes without looking at the screen or the keyboard. Enter your results in the comments.
Its a lot harder than you think!
Seriously, I want to know how you did. Am I really that bad?
