    I have been racking my brain for the past week trying to figure out how to pass this typing test to get this remote position. They want a certain WPM(65) and I can only get to 60. Does anyone know how to pass this test without actually typing 65 WPM? Nothing else will unlock in the application process until I pass this test. Maybe someone knows a few pointers to help me speed up a bit. Thanks in Advance~

    You could write an automated program, but you would need to tap into the program, what is the test running on?

    the only thing i can say is keep practicing. when you take the test give yourself a rest before hand. i always type slower and slower the longer i go. i type over 100 wpm.

    I learned on a manual typewriter... the electric ones came to my
    school the year after I took the class.
