    I've really lost my touch...41-50 wpm. I used to type faster, but I'm in no need to have to type fast for anything.

    56 wpm. I know I've lost a little bit since my younger days, so I did a bit better than I thought I might.

    50 wpm, 94% accuracy, so a total of 47 wpm.

    I made mistakes I NEVER made, simply because I knew I was racing the clock.

    Silly.

    A few mistakes isn't a bad thing. That's what "da*n you autocorrect" is for.

    64 wpm with 92% accuracy. Because I'm self taught, I'm slowed down by anything that has a lot of punctuation or numbers because I never learned those rows and have to slow down to look.

    I was at 91% w/ no errors. It probably would have been quicker if my laptop wasn't falling off my lap while typing.

    Do the test talking about test instruction. That has less of those pesky other characters.

    I got 93 WPM with 97% accuracy. I was typing on my laptop with it wobbling on my lap. I can type over 100 WPM on a desktop keyboard. People often bring me things to type for them because I type fast and have good accuracy.

    I freak the kids out at work because I will be typing really fast, and then I'll say something to a kid and keep typing. They didn't realize that I was looking at them the whole time. I'm sneaky like that.

    In high school I learned to type on a manual typewriter. I got around 55 WPM on that. When I first used a computer keyboard, I couldn't believe how much faster it was.

    LOL Peachy, silly mom not leaving you alone during your important test.

    I'm a slow poke compared to you guys, 44 wpm. I never learned how to type properly so my finger placement is totally off. It works for me though. I've never had a job that requires a ton of typing, so my speed is fine for my needs.

    98 wmp. I'll do it again when I get home. I'm at work and distracted...and half awake. It felt really slow compared to how I normally type.
