as an incredibly slow typer, I would like this too.
Just go to best buy and purcase one of their typing programs for 20$. I used Mavis Beacon the summer before 1L. I got to 60-70 wpm before school started, and then from typing throughout the semester I got up to 80-90 before exams. So i though it was definitely worth it.
Yeah, don't get too paranoid about typing speed. I'm a pretty slow typist (idk how many wpm, but my typing style is embarrassing and it can't be more than 60wpm), and I didn't feel disadvantaged by my typing speed at all. Getting up to 70-80 wpm is likely plenty. Some people swear by typing 120 wpm for the entire exam, but there's a reason, at least in my experience, you don't see a lot of 30 page model answers.
Edit: Just checked the longest exam I wrote 1L year. I spent about 1/3 of the time reading and outlining, so I averaged 36 WPM.
