Most of you guys don't get it.
You get fast at typing by typing words you KNOW, as quick as your fingers can move. Stay within your subject range, and after a few years, you can type incredibly fast, easily into the mid 150's, AS LONG AS YOU STAY WITHIN your subject range!!!
Typing contests are totally random weirdo words, words which you seldom have time to practice with. They are NOT the indication of how fast you can type, but there ARE an indication of how fast you can type words you never typed before.
There is a difference!
