Short and fast typing drills

Page history last edited by Diane Evans 13 years, 8 months ago

Do you have good accuracy but need to type faster?  Try this!


Open Word and make the window smaller, but big enough for you to type one sentence.  Set the timer and type these short drills as fast as you can. Don't backspace or try to correct errors. These drills will help your speed but not your accuracy.  For example, if you type the first sentence in 10 seconds, you have typed at 48 wpm. Try it.


These drills are good for your team work. Use the stopwatch below to time yourself to know your typing speed. Type each one two or three times - your speed should increase.
