Type Racer Is Challenging and Fun!

Type Racer

Well, I finally figured out how to post a screen shot using Paint and Photobucket. I wanted to show you how cool this little typing site is. You can race against other people and it tells you your words per minute, accuracy percentage and your place in the race. Of course, I chose to show the screen shot of one where I came in first but that doesn't happen as often as I'd like, so now I have a challenge. The key is to not make any mistakes because it won't let you go on until you backspace and correct it. It only gives a short paragraph to type so if you goof up, you really don't have enough time to make up for it.

Go to http://play.typeracer.com and see how you do.

That is fun. I just played a few games. Wow you can type fast 82 wpm! My fastest so far was 59 wpm. I guess I need practice!

That was fun but I didn't do well. They gave me Shakespeare and Pink Floyd to type. Oh well, I enjoyed it!!

I was surprised how rusty I was at first but when I did a little several days, I got better. In college we used to have 10-minute timings! I'm surprised how many people score over 100 on here.
