How many words per minute can you type?

This year I've got a computer class and for a while now we've been practicing typing. I was pretty shocked at first, since my times were actually a lot better than I had guessed, for a while now I had always thought my max to be about 70 words per minute, but I'm actually more in the mid 80s in terms of words per minute. It's funny since I type faster than the teacher. :P Guess all that posting has paid off since my wpm used to be more around like 60.

I can type between 50 and 60 WPM, unless I make mistakes and have to go back and fix them.

Yeah, if I try harder I can type maybe 60 or so, but I usually hover in the 50s.

I hover probably around the 60-70 range I guess. I don't know what my cruise speed would be, although my top speed is in the mid 80's.

Oh, well then that's my cruise speed, I guess. I usually make about 55 to 60 per minute. Sometimes I can make upwards of 70.

After posting so much your speed tends to increase, or at least that happened to me.

I think he said once it was in the 100's. I don't remember too well though, he would have to say what it is.

True, but 50 per minute itself is good. Let's say you have a 1000 word essay to make, it should take 20 minutes to type it up about. :P

Yeah, although imagine being done in under a minute with it. You would be so time efficient. :P

I always just hit backspace and keep going on those typing tests when I get errors. It slows my time down but I like having no errors.

It's funny, that at my school the majority of people can only type like 20-30 words a minute, and very few can actually get above 50.
