Should you slow down? - Beanalog

This quote was added by beanalog
Most pundits will tell you that accuracy is more important than speed, and that you should slow your pace if you find that you are making too many mistakes. This has some truth to it, especially on Keyhero which appears to penalize mistakes in an exaggerated way; however, accuracy itself comes initially from thinking about each letter, and this is no way to attain typing mastery which ultimately requires the typist to not think in terms of letters but words.
