B-4:. Checking your speed over two minutes

Do it!

Here’s how Here’s why
1 Prepare to start typing. Check your posture, and make sure your fingers are resting on your home keys. If you’re timing yourself, open the Date/Time clock and move it to a corner of your screen. Pick a good starting point for the second hand.
2 On your instructor’s mark, begin typing the following paragraph. Do not stop typing until one minute has elapsed. If you’re practicing this speed drill on your own, begin typing when the second hand reaches the point you have chosen.
Council meetings are scheduled for the last day of March, June, (64) September and December. The chair person will read the minutes (129) from the previous meeting which must be agreed by those present (193) before the meeting can begin. Members of the public can attend the (261) meetings but space is limited and quickly fills up. The meetings (327) have a reputation for lively debates. (364)
3 Calculate your typing speed and record your results. Remember to jot down that this was a two-minute test.
