67 but I made a lot of mistakes rushing so I don't know if I would be faster if I slowed down and just spelled everything correctly

98 WPM, 99% accuracy.

ETA: 107 WPM, 99.5%. I'm bragging now because I'm pretty sure when I fail law school and end up as a legal assistant these typing skills will come in handy.

Sixty-nine WPM, 97% accuracy. The way they have that thing set up is pretty annoying. There's other ones where you can see the whole paragraph you're typing.

91, 100%. Lucked out though, got a Blade Runner quote. If RC were pages from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, I'd be -0 on that, too.

There's attorneys where I work that hunt and peck (while using WordPerfect of course, despite the fact that we have full Office 2010 suite), so I think we're doing pretty well.

Fuck WordPerfect and fuck the fact that the legal field has such a boner for it.

43 wpm 1st run, after staring at " - entertainment - " for half a minute. 81 wpm, 97.7 2nd run. is this what writing a law exam is like?
