how well do you type?
When I first was learning how to type my parents got us a game called type attack. If was kind of like space invaders but you had to type the letters to kill the progressing alien letters. It was fun but not a very practical way to learn how to type.
During my senior year in high school (after writing many papers with hunting and pecking) I decided that I should take a typing course. It was a half year course and I was the only senior in a class full of freshmen. Looking back on it I would say that it was one of the most productive that taught a very practical skill. I can now type without looking at the keyboard for the most part but really don’t know how fast I type.
In reading my feeds this morning I noticed that LifeHacker posted about an online typing test. It loads quick and gives your real time feedback on how fast you type and how many errors you make. After a few runs I started to averaged between 40-45 with about 1 error per run. Try it out and let me know how you do?
