I figured I type around 65 wpm but didn't know, so I looked for an online typing test.<br><br><br><br>
I type at 93 wpm. holy cow.<br><br><br><br>
How about you?<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.typingtest.com/" target="_blank">http://www.typingtest.com/</a>

<span style="color:#008000;">68 WPM, 98% accuracy.<br><br>
I've actually used that site before to practice typing tests before I have a job interview. I have scored higher than that at times, and lower too. I seem to average between 65 and 72 wpm on the whole, with 92-97% accuracy overall.<br><br><br><br>
So that begs the question- what's more important, speed or accuracy? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></span>

My speed includes backspacing, so I had 100% accuracy.<br><br><br><br>
I guess that would imply, then, that I believe accuracy to be the most important. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

<span style="color:#008000;">My accuracy was with no backspacing too.<br><br><br><br>
Not to derail the thread, but if you wanna play a fun typing-based game to up your speed you should check out TyperShark.<br><br><a href="http://www.popcap.com/gamepopup.php?theGame=typershark" target="_blank">http://www.popcap.com/gamepopup.php?theGame=typershark</a><br><br><br><br>
It's on Yahoo! games too but I think you have to be using IE to play it there.<br><br>
Be warned, it's crack and has seemingly no end.</span>

48 wpm with 98% accuracy..... but it's 11:30pm, and i only ever use two fingers (hehe i'm one of those classy people who just types with their two index fingers) so i'm quite happy with that, to be honest!

50 words per minute is considered very good on the civil service test as long as your accuracy is very high. I think they allow for 2-3 errors.

I don't type with proper technique though, I use two fingers on each hand.
