Speed test



Interestingly, the top mistakes I made were due to trying to "correct" grammar in this jumble of words (ie, the wrong there/their near a noun) and flipping similar sounding letter combinations (ie, typing "ov" instead of "of" or "where" instead of "wear". Also, my first score was about 50. That was when I was just looking at each word and typing it. When I started reading it has a sentence and reading ahead (like you would if you were typing your thoughts or someone else's), my score jumped. Interesting.

EDIT: I tried again with a faster computer and actually being awake:

It is way too late. I thought I copied the code, but it didn't work, so I'll just tell you that it said I typed 92 wpm with zero errors. I should try again when I'm awake.

I have never scored so well on a typing test. Maybe because it was those most common words?

Maybe because you were tired you were able to concentrate on a different level.

I noticed the seeing it as sentences thing too. Because you're reading ahead. When you think about how your brain works it's wild. I mean think about it... you're actually reading the word before you type it, which means your hands are typing one thing while your brain is reading something totally different. In cer edible!

I'm almost as good as you. :-p

I average about 50 wpm on this test. I would like to try one where the words are arranged in sentences--typing just words frustrates me. It feels very stilted, and then reading ahead just makes me write a similar word that makes more sense in front of the next word.

At www.typingtest.com I had 55 words per minute. I felt I did about my usual on that one, so perhaps that would be accurate for me.
