WPM vs Accuracy

Post by mudassar1095 » Sun Nov 01, 2020 12:56 pm

Hi,
I have recently 'learnt' touch typing. During practice sessions, if I try to get higher WPM, accuracy drops and vice versa. What should I aim for: WPM or Accuracy?
I personally feel like I should try to have accuracy >90%.
What do you guys suggest?

You should focus on accurassy and the speed will come naturally after that, but it takes time. Accuracy should be ideally above 97%.
Every correction or error costs time. So the more accurate you can type the faster you will become.

As a new member of this site, I think that accuracy is most important.......
