Increasing my typing speed

How can I achieve 35 WPM in 7 days?


Practice and dedication are very powerful ingredients to master the skill that you aim to have.

Most people have an average speed of 45 WPM so cheer up friend, you can do it!

Hi, @jaydensheppard!

To answer your question, I would need to know what WPM you’re starting from, but I suppose regardless the answer is: practice!

The touch typing method relies on the development of muscle memory and that will take time, patience, and repetition. If practiced consistently on a daily basis, typing skills are bound to improve dramatically in a matter of weeks. No one will master keyboarding after one lesson, but with about 20 minutes of daily practice, most should be more than proficient in touch typing within 2 or 3 months.

That being said, if you are really, truly committed to typing correctly at the speed of 35 WPM within the next 168 hours, you probably could do it. I’m just afraid you wouldn’t be doing much besides it…

You’ll have to come back and post to give us an update on your progress!
