Re: Any typing habits?

For me it usually depends how much noise there is in the background. If there are people talking and whatnot, putting music on drones it out and helps me concentrate. If it's silent then I usually type best when I'm just listening to the tapping of the keys. Something about listening to the button t...

Re: Typing tips

45-50 wpm That isn't slow by any means, and it'd be completely ignorant of me to suggest that you need to be an extremely fast typist to give sound advice. I would, however, like to suggest that you consider the advantages of simplicity and familiarity over those of a possibly more efficient, but m...

Re: Typing tips

After doing this shift, you can easily get your hands back to the normal position and resume typing. If you always stay in your comfort zone and don't give tips that can help you improve a try, you can only go so far. The tip I have just given is part of touch typing (i.e. hitting all keys with the...

Re: Typing tips

After you hit the T, G or V keys with the second finger on your left hand, your fourth finger is hovering over the E key ready to hit it. If you decide to use your third finger, there's a high chance that you will hit the R key or hit the R and E keys at the same time. Valid, but the frequency of &...

Re: Typing tips

Once you hit the T, G or V keys, you will be less likely to make an error if you use your fourth finger to hit the E key instead of your third finger for words with "TE", "GE" and "VE" combinations. I have to disagree. With the frequency of words with "a" suc...

That's how pretty much everyone does it.

Re: Typing tips

When typing words that start with or end in "tes", "ges", "gues" or "ves" combinations, you should hit the "E" key with the 4th finger on your left hand and hit the "S" key with your left pinkie. Type: test states stages guess plagues vest...

Re: Individual and general typing speed

I have to question how useful these average WPM statistics are. A lot of kids, generally in the 11-13 year old age category from what I've seen, get pretty big heads about their typing speeds. I'm sure everyone is fairly used to seeing all the "hi im 13 and type 80 wpm am i fast??" posts. ...
