Reflections

I seem to have hit a plateau.

My biggest problems during the typing test are capital letters and symbols. I will utilise the tools that use capital letters and symbols in my training more in the coming week, to see if that helps me improve.

I am not honest with myself regarding accuracy being the focus. I usually try to go faster instead of being more accurate. That might be a reason to why my accuracy is not improving at all.
I will put more effort into being more accurate when I type train this coming week.

Training Plan & Tools

I still roughly do three sessions per day. I try to do a minimum of 30′ of typing training per day.

I have been using the following tools since the last test:

  • zty.pe (Speed over accuracy – no capital letters or symbols – game.)
  • typeracer.com (Speed and accuracy – includes capital letters and symbols – compete w/ other ppl.)
  • typingclub.com (Speed and accuracy – so far no capital letters but includes symbols.)
  • KeyKey (Speed and accuracy – no capital letters or symbols (might have these if you have a US keyboard).)

Criticism Wanted

Do you have any criticism of my approach? Do you know a better way for me to reach this goal of mine? If you do, I would appreciate it if you let me know by posting it in the comments.
