Took it a few times and it varied between 65-85. The things that threw me off where those quotation marks, commas, random capital words, and those random dashes (--).

^ I can handle all punctuation marks really well as well fortunately, but like I said, the numbers are the only thing I'm not 'expert' on, but again, they're not that big a deal and at least I'm average on those.

Yeah numbers are the only thing that really throws me off.

I know I can do even better too, but probably not like way better by a lot, but still, I kinda am motivated to get even better because I hear the people that work at the court have to have a minimum of at least 140 or 150 WPM. Is that right? Cuz if so, that'd be effin' awesome. They pay pretty damn well.

Still, nobody knows what's the minimum requirement of WPM for a data entry person/job?

^^^^Dunno about taking it a few times. I'm sure I can get better the 2nd and 3rd times around...That's sort of like cheating since you already know what you're basically going to type..

^ Oh man, THANKS A TON! I would OWN/DOMINATE! I might look into that field, though I doubt they're hiring with this horrid economy, especially in our state of California right now, but hey, who knows, maybe they'll consider those who have greater qualifications more. :dance1:

It takes me a long time since I type with two damn fingers. I got about 60WPM with a lot of errors, but I do type pretty fast when I know what I want to type and I don't need to look at anything else to type.

^ And you're just 12 years old? Dude, I wanna' race you. Of course you'd actually beat me. You average like 5-10 more wpm than me. Punk, lol.

You also play drums, guitar, harmonica, accordion, bass, trumpet, flute, sing. Is there anything you can't do? Can't believe you don't have any YouTube videos man. You could be a hit if you're that talented, especially at just effin' 12!

I hate typing numbers. Gahhh. Punctuation is a bit of an issue sometimes - depends. Commas and periods are no problem.
