Although there are several reasons behind such high scores in typing tests, there are two main reasons – (a) muscle memory and (b) practice, practice, and practice.

Muscle memory can be defined as “when you do the same task over and over again, your body and brain learn to perform this task without conscious effort”. The more you practice, the better muscle memory is achieved. At this stage, your fingers know where the keys are positioned in the keyword. So, you do not need to look at the keyboard to type anything.

What is touch typing? Touch typing or touch type or touch keyboarding is typing using all one's fingers and without looking at the keys. So, you must type without using the sense of sight to find the keys and use all your fingers instead of use a few fingertips and even nails to type. Expert typists are touch typists. The following sections will guide you to become a touch typist.

Always practice typing to become an expert touch typist.

Maintain the correct sitting posture for typing

If your sitting position is not correct, this can be tiring.

  • You should not only sit straight but also keep your back straight.
  • Your chair should have proper support for your back.
  • Feel free to place a small pillow between your back and your chair if your chair does not have any built-in cushion for your lower back.
  • There should be minimum from 45 to 70 centimeters distance between your eyes and the screen.
  • But you should not sit far away from your computer too. This will make hard to type.
  • Place the screen in such a place that it is in the same height of your head when you look forward. As an alternative, you can adjust your chair if you are using an adjustable chair.
  • When you keep your fingers on the keyboard, your elbow should be in 90 degree angle.
  • When you type, you should feel comfortable and allow minimum strain to your shoulder, arm, and wrist muscles.
  • Try to put your feet flat on the floor if it is OK with you.
  • Your fingers should be just a little curved.
  • Remember that you arms should always be relaxed.

Typing on your lap is not recommended. Type at a desk or table. The place where you sit and type should be comfortable, well-lit, and well-ventilated.

Here are some achievement goals/targets for each level of progress:

Beginner level goals: Two goals – (a) just try to build the good habit of using the right fingers to press the right key and (b) make sure that you can easily and correctly press the keys in function row, number row, tab row, home row, bottom row, and space bar row.

Intermediate level goals: Two goals – (a) identify which keys or key combinations are giving you trouble and practice typing more to iron these errors out and (b) make sure you can accurately and comfortably use both hands and all fingers to press the keys.

Advanced level goals: Three goals – (a) build muscle memory so that you can accurately type fast without looking at the keys, (b) achieve a professional score in every typing speed test and (c) develop natural rhythm when you type.

How long should you practice every day? You should practice at least 30 (thirty) minutes or more. Ideal time is – at least one hour or more. Divide your practice in many short periods. Practicing long periods are less useful than practicing many short periods.

The secrets of the F and J keys

Did you ever notice raised bumps on each of the F key and J key? If not, notice now. Why are raised bumps added to these keys?

When your index fingers rest on the F and J keys, your other fingers will naturally fall into other keys.

In other words, you do not need to look away from your screen if your index fingers are on these keys because you can easily locate any key you need to press. Whenever you sit to type something, start by placing your index fingers on these raised bumps. So, your left hand fingers should be on “ASDF” keys and right hand fingers on “JKL;” keys. Now you are ready to start typing.

Do not look at the keys when you type and practice typing test

The fact is - looking at the keyboard actually slows a typist down. So, you should memorize the position of each key. When you start practicing, you may make mistakes. But it is OK. No one became an expert typist without making mistakes.

Just remember that the more you practice, the better your fingers will automatically be able to find the right key and press it without your conscious effort. This way your muscle memory will grow.

But if you look at the keys and type, this will delay your learning. In fact, this is the incorrect way of learning typing. So, try to avoid this from day one.

Another important suggestion here is - to improve your typing speed and reduce stress on your hands, position your fingers close to the base position of your keyboard.

Do you want to take a challenge and force yourself to learn the key positions? Okay! Buy a Das Keyboard Ultimate because it is a blank keyboard. It will be useless even if you look at the keyboard. Does this sound challenging and interesting?

Higher accuracy can result in higher speed typing

When you make a lot of mistakes, it slows down your speed. Did you notice? On the other hand, there is no use of fast typing speed if you are making a lot of mistakes. As a beginner, take your time and use the correct fingers to press the keys and thus, try to be accurate in your typing practice and typing speed test. The more accurate you become, the higher speed you will see.

Another point is – you waste your time, energy, productivity when you make a lot of mistakes and use the backspace key many times to delete first and then correct the errors. So, it is perfectly OK to slow down and try to be more accurate. Do not worry. Eventually, speed will follow you. When you slow down and try to be accurate, you will feel relaxed and more in control.

You should never worry about speed in practice typing test. Instead, try to be accurate in your typing test speed test online! So, feel free to slow down when you find that your typing is getting less accurate.

When you are a beginner, try to repeatedly type sample passages over and over again. It has two benefits – you gain accuracy and speed at the same time. Give a try and you will understand how it works.

First, try to be 100% accurate. So, feel free to slow your typing pace until you can attain 100% accuracy. Then go for speed. Remember what Vince Lombardi said, "Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect."

You should minimize your physical effort

Your keyboard is good enough to register a keystroke with a light touch. So, there is no need to type with force. This just drains your energy out and strains your wrists and hands.

When you type, your finger muscles are not only involved but also your hands, arms, back, shoulders, neck and head muscles are involved. Forceful typing strains all these muscles. So, always use the minimum force necessary to type.

Stretch your wrists when they get stiff

It is common among typists when their wrists get stiff if they type for a longer period of time. Stiff wrists will surely slow down you speed. But how should you stretch your wrists? Go to Youtube.com and search for “wrist stretching exercises” and you will find several exercises. Click here to watch a quick and easy wrist stretching exercise. This kind of exercise can bring back energy and mobility of your wrists and fingers.

Use basic keyboard shortcuts to navigate faster

When you use shortcuts, your hands are still on the keyboard. But when you use your mouse, your hands go away from the keyboard. Finally, your hand comes back on the keyboard. It consumes and/or wastes your valuable typing time. The less you save the mouse, the more time you save.

Keep at least one or both thumbs on the space bar

Oftentimes, we need to type one or more spaces. If you keep at least one or both the thumbs on the space bar, you will never need to shift your hands around to type one or more spaces between two words. So, do not take both your thumbs off the space bar at the same time. This will surely save your time.

Use a keyboard you are comfortable with

Buy a mechanical keyboard
