At the present time, you can often see announcements that employees are required to work at a computer in an office or bank. If you are applying for this position, employers require employees to have word processing experience and a certain typing speed. It happens that you want to get a job in this position, but doubt your keyboard skills. In this article, we will tell you how to test your typing speed, how to learn to write quickly and without errors. If you want, it's easy to type quickly, but it will take a little time.
How to check typing speed
To do this, you only need a computer with a keyboard and an ordinary stopwatch. So, let's move on to the first method. There are many sites on the Internet that offer you to test your typing speed. They provide an opportunity to learn skills not only in Russian, but also in six other languages.
Let's take the site http://nabiraem.ru/test as an example. It is not difficult to understand it. First install "Flash Player",if you don't already have it. And let's move on to the test itself. Words appear in the left window, and you write them on the right. The system will determine how many mistakes you made. The advantage of such sites is that you do not need any additional equipment or assistant.
If for some reason you did not like online testing, then we can offer you the second, old and proven method. You must choose your own text. For convenience, it is better to print it. Place it on your left side, time your stopwatch, and start typing. But it is better to use this method with an assistant who will keep track of the time on the stopwatch.
Now we will look at what is considered normal typing speed. 150-200 characters per minute is not a professional user. 250-400 characters per minute - already a professional and confident user. More than 400 characters are recruited by masters with great experience.
