If you read this page carefully you will be able to learn to type faster online. The best part is that it's 100% free.
People have different typing speeds based on their experience and their position. Here is an general idea about the average typing speed:
Words per minute (WPM) is a measure of typing speed, commonly used in recruitment. For the purposes of WPM measurement a word is standardized to five characters or keystrokes. Therefore, "fifth" counts as one word, but "fifteenth" counts as two.
Learning to type is very easy, if you follow simple methods such as the touch typing method. Slow typists usually use the "hunt and peck" method (looking for letters individually) or the two-fingered typing method (typing with two fingers). The slowest of both methods is to combine them both (typing with two fingers and looking for each letter individually). These methods are slow because a typist is required to find each key by sight and move their fingers a greater distance due to the use of only two fingers.
In contrast, the Touch Typing method gives far better results. It can efficiently bring an average speed typist up to 60 WPM fairly quickly, and at the same time increase accuracy by great amounts. Upon learning to touch type, comfortable typing speed is expected to be achieved within about a week, and full speed within 3 weeks to a month by regular daily practice.
Here are some tips to help improve your typing speed. Just follow these simple steps:
