    30 words a minute (1 mintue, the Huckleberry Finn test).

    But it's so much quicker and easier to type when you have in your head what you want to type. I found it hard having to look up at the test all the time to see what to type, and then get it accurate. Apparently if I doubled my speed I could save 41 minutes per day...
    i got a few errors on that because of the punctuation, you dont use it that much on UKL

    I'm a typing machine, few years ago decided to learn where all the keys were without looking and proper typing technique. I reckon a few months or hard work has given me a useful skill as i will be typing alot in the future.

    i got gross speed: 69 wpm and net 64 wpm on that test.

    I touch type which probably partyle explains my high post counts, it takes me like 10 seconds to write this.
    10 seconds is a long time to write that if you touch type.

    Try and use more fingers - RSI will beckon.

    My mother forced me to learn to touch-type over a summer holiday when I was about twelve. I found it really boring at the time but now I am glad she did, because I can type as fast as a professional typist.

    ive not been tought how to type, but i do so much of it anyway that I do seem to have picked up a quasi touch-type way of typing. I dont put my fingers on the keyboard's nipples (the little lines on the F and J keys), but just hover my fingers over the keyboard, and know where to hit.

    I usually type with two hands, using my left for the left side of the keyboard and the right for the right.

    I'm not really sure how I type, I usually don't look at the keyboard and use most of my fingers but don't use a thumb for the spacebar !
