32 words per minute with 5 errors. Although, its much harder to type fast when you have to read off the screen. When it's your own thoughts and words it comes out much faster.

92 words with 3 errors! Although, all of the errors were due to spacing.

92 seems physically impossible! Are you leading us off the deep end, John? Or are you really 'the hand'?

I'm not, I swear! I'm just young! I took "Computer Application" classes in 7th and 8th grade for a semester each, and all we basically did was learn to type fast and with accuracy. I guess it did help in the long run!

61/5 errors. Wow John--92! P.S.:your name reminds me of the 2 John Kims at our school. Their name was exactly the same, and they were in the same homeroom class. So when graduation time came, the teacher called John Kim twice in a row!

I typed 36 words per minute with 13 errors!

I agree with Caroline. It's hard to read something off the screen and type at the same time. Quite awhile ago I used to be a typesetter. I was responsible for entering text for magazine advertisements, coupons, newspaper advertisements, poster, and other boring things. Speed isn't a requirement for this; accuracy is.

Cool test though.

John

Hey, you're about the same speed as me then. Though with 13 errors i hope the advertisements you used to do were not for ferarri's. Everyone would be down the local garage demanding the 10000 brand new ferarri they saw advertised. \:D

LoL they weren't for Ferarri's...That would be too interesting. These were mostly advertisements for jars of fruit salad, wood stoves, and furniture along with employment advertisements for different companies.

My current job requires data entry, and customer correspondence so I get a lot of practice all day.


My brother has a saying... He can type 180 words per minute. The only thing is 99% of the keys are Backspace!

Hehe, your brother sounds like a hoot.

I hope your current job is more exciting for you. You could easily go crazy writing about jars of fruit salad all day. ;\)

My brother does have a great sense of humor and is quite a tease to boot! He went and blew at the hydrometer, I have on my new piano, to raise the humidity, just to see me go into a snit.

He's also famous for repacking mailorder things that come in into broken boxes just to see my reaction. Hehe he's always been like this even when he was a kid.

Oh yeah the job swell... I'd rather type in fruit salad coupons. Hehe... The network admin part is fun. I get to play with different tools, check out broken PCs and help people.

The other part, of the many hats I wear, is really boring. Filling out customer orders on the computer that they send in by fax. I'm getting so I know nearly every person I talk to based on where they call from. I'm also getting to know every part number by heart too. 618910 - Drytech 30" Imagesetting Film... $980 per roll. 625537 - Semi-Gloss finish material...$250 per roll. AGHHH!!!

John
