Typing Speed Hack

Hey guys, just wanted to share a quick tip that will artificially boost your WPM by about 10-15 WPM. My total WPM went from the mid 50's up to the mid 80's in just a little over a month while if I hadn't been using this hack I think that my speed would still be around the mid 60's range.

The trick is that every once in a while, say every 10 games or so, your typing just magically clicks and you can get speeds up to 10-15 WPM higher than what you usually get. But your scores are averaged so these little boosts don't raise your score since sometimes during games you mess up horribly and your accuracy drops below 80%.

However, you can SKIP quotes that you don't like by pressing the Esc key and your score for that game won't be registered and added to your average. So during your games, type normally but only finish quotes that are above your average WPM. During games you mess up, just press Esc and go on to the next one until you get a score that is higher and higher.

I think this misses the point of this site, which should be to improve your real typing performance. It's not about the score ;)

Maybe, but I did say that it was an "artificial" boost so you of course are not actually getting faster. It just looks nice.

My teacher gives grades not based on learning but based on how fast you type... So crazy

Agreed, only betas try to compete in the leaderboards.

I thought it was a hack about really improving your speed.

who cares about the score. Please tell us how to increase the WPM
