You may already know your WPM's but it's just fun to see how you do anyway...

Just for the record, I suck. 40 WPM's. In fact, it almost took me half an hour just to type this post.

Oct 24th 2006

I type 70 wpm, so I'm average. At least I'm better than Jim.

Oct 24th 2006

62 wpm with 98% accuracy. Took it twice to be sure.

Oct 24th 2006

88, which is quite respectable I think.

Oct 24th 2006

65 with 99% accuracy. See, I would be perfect for Jim.

That's better than high school! In Keyboarding, 9th grade, like 6 years ago, I consistantly was around 18-20. I did well in the other computer classes, but Keyboarding was a stupid pre-requisite and I think I got a lousy B or even C there. I'm happy with 40! Plus, I think I type faster when I'm not trying to copy something else. I'm probably a little faster when it's just off the top of my head, like right now.

Oct 24th 2006

I type 73 wpm with 96% accuracy, when I'm trying to do well on a typing test. Otherwise, slower, with more errors.

You don't want to know how I did on the Wizard of Oz one...

Oct 25th 2006

I dont like that one. I hit spacebar one too many times, and my entire paragraph was off. they wanted me to type one word, i was still typing another word. i got like, 1 WPM. which is crap, since i've done better on other WPM tests online. and Pam's 90 is insane. It's like White and Nerdy playing minesweeper insane.

Pam's 90 is insane. It's like White and Nerdy playing minesweeper insane.

I love that song. And the video for it is hilarious as well.

The last test I did i got 130wpm @ 100% :)

I have a friend that does over 150 but we're both programming nerds..

Oct 25th 2006

jaw drops

I'm at 65 WPM with 90% accuracy.

(Kevin voice)

I suck.

Oct 25th 2006

I'm not even going to admit to my typing speed. Let's just say, I better purchase that typing tutor software.

and Deer Jerky, you can't be serious. How is that even possible? If it is true, do you have some tips you can give us?

Oct 25th 2006

Oh, Pan, that's... respectable. But after Deer Jerky's numbers, I feel ashamed as well.

Showoff.

Jul 15th 2007

My first attempt I couldn't figure out how to start the test. My second? It all went horribly awry the minute I inserted two hyphens for that dash after "Zebra." I also blame the keyboard.

Jul 15th 2007

Thanks for resurrecting this, the only thread I"ve ever started on NA. It's a beauty.

Respectable, but nothing to that guy upthread who claims to type 130 WPM, because he's a "programming geek". Whatevs to that guy.

Jul 15th 2007

Whatevs to that guy.

Whoa!!! I thought we were done with slavery here in this country! You can't just hand over a human life like that.

Jul 16th 2007

On the zebra one:
gross: 69 wpm / accuracy: 94% / net: 65 wpm

On the enchanted typewriter one:
gross: 85 wpm / accuracy: 95% / net: 81 wpm

All the capital letters in the zebra one slowed me down.

Jul 16th 2007 edited

So I just did the three minute Wizard of Oz one and fared much better:

Net Speed: 89 WPM
Accuracy: 98%
Gross Speed: 90 WPM

Showoff.

You know it. (Blowing the smoke off my fingertips.)

(I have to tell you that I feel as cool as Dwight dressed like Darth Maul at Halloween. Dawesome)

Jul 16th 2007

I've never seen so little accomplishment go to someone's head. Does this mean I'm working Saturday?

Jul 17th 2007

Thanks for getting my back, Asdfaeou!

You know what is weird? You mentioned me and slavery in the same post...well, the last thing I watched on my iPod was..."Roots".

Jul 17th 2007

82 with 94% accuracy, 87 gross. My former boss claimed she typed 100WAM--no way. She was so much slower than the rest of us.

Jul 18th 2007

You know, changing stories makes all the difference. I totally bombed the Zebra one and didn't realize at the time we could change. But how's this:

66 WPM
97% Accuracy (68 WPM gross)...

Just took it again. 86 WPM, 100% accuracy. I think we've found my range.

. . . and again: 94 WPM gross, 98%, 93 WPM net. I think that's a record for me.
