    Taking a free typing test is a good way to measure your typing speed. However, before you take the test, there are a few things you should keep in mind if you want to be a champion typist.

    One, accuracy is more important than speed. Second, if you have to type, do it right with eyes fixed on the screen and both hands positioned correctly over the keyboard. And finally, get a comfortable chair and keep your back straight. Slouching over your computer is definitely not going to help your typing speed!
