How To Type 100 WPM

  • Do not rush in the beginning
  • Take your time to avoid mistakes
  • No chicken pecking
  • Fingers resting on the home row, not wandering around
  • Sit up straight, practice good posture and wrist position
  • Position your monitor 20 inches away from your eyes, about an arms length away.

Typing Tips For Beginners

Usually the fastest and easiest way to improve your score is to improve your accuracy.  Try to hit 100wpm mistake-free. I started the year typing with 96-97% accuracy, and it was a challenge to type 100wpm without any mistakes. Today, I completed the challenge, but it’s not something I can consistently repeat. After 5 minutes of typing it’s best to take a break because your hands will start to get tired.

Learn To Type With Practice

Speed up after typing accurately becomes a habit. Practice, practice practice, and your speed and accuracy will get better. If you’re struggling, check out the many free typing games and lessons online. When I was first started typing the good lessons cost money and were Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and Peter Cortez Championship Typing. Now there are many good free lessons including on typing.com or available from many open resources online. I believe in you, you got this, you can do it. Have fun typing if that’s what you’re into, and good luck on your 100wpm challenge!
