    Is this a trick question?

    I can type around 80 words a minute most of the time. Pretty pokey compared to some of you I know!!

    That depends on how many mistakes I'm allowed.

    My result:

    Gross Words Per Minute (GWPM): 51
    Net Words Per Minute (NWPM): 43

    Not bad - I'd have pegged myself at about 30 wpm if asked before the test.

    Really pretty good! I was expecting ALOT less...

    Does this mean I get the job???

    I need a new career...

    I have to say that I was intimidated when the text said that in my new career I needed to be able to type fast...My instincts were to type slower because I hate being micromanaged!!!
