Typing Update #2

Apr 23, 2011

I sat down for some more typing practice this afteroon, knocking out 40 rounds of the exercise I linked to earlier this week. Today’s results:

Rounds: 40
WPM: 58.6
Time: 61.45 seconds
Correct: 301.925
Incorrect: 4.375
Accuracy: 0.9857

I had two mistake-free rounds. I found that focusing on accuracy rather than speed led to overall faster times, which makes sense since mistakes really screw up the typing flow.

If you’re interested in doing something like this, I’ve been storing my results in vaguely Markdown-ish data files which I then process with a simple Ruby script.
