Practice Your Typing With A Timed Typing Test - Touch Typing Tip #2
Like most other things in life, practice is the key to improving your WPM and accuracy. Any time that you are at your keyboard, try paying attention to the most common mistakes that you make. Recognize the problems that are costing you time and you will be on the road to increasing your productivity. Once in a while, take an online typing test to get your baseline WPM, and then set a goal for yourself. A few days later, try it again. Before you know it, you will be typing faster.

but there are hundreds if not thousands of online typing tests out there. Just please don't impede your progress by using a 'test' that disables the backspace key, or one that forces you to correct your errors before continuing the test. Once you get used to the format of these tests, you WILL improve your WPM... Until you have to type for any other reason - then the unrealistic habits you have learned will actually slow you down.
