  • I type about 60. Although when I have my nails longer isn't not so good. I have to keep them short and then I can type really well.

  • I type about 60. The way to figure it out is to set a timer and then type for 3 minutes. It's best to get something to copy. Then count one word for every five characters including letters, spaces, and punctuation. Then divide it by three and it gives you the average words you type per minute.

  • I type about 75-80, but you can do tests online to get an idea of how fast you go, plus it judges your accuracy. Just google "typing test"
