Funny, I think the most practical and useful class I ever took in high school was typing. I was big into programming and thought it would be a good idea to know how to type. Who would have thought the computer would have been so needed in the future. I'm no speed typist by any means, but I can talk with my fingers as easily as with my mouth. Perhaps that was the goal of the teacher afterall!!!

I took typing class because the teacher was really good looking. Never knew "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." would be so valuable.

We used the sentence, "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country." I could type in high school on an electric typewriter 72 wpm. Took shorthand at 120 wpm. I type with all 8 fingers and still type fast but make more mistakes. :rolleyes: No brag, just fact. :D

I took typing in high school. I thought that I would need it for college, so into the class I went. I never got up to 60 or 72 wpm. But I have become more proficient with time and the requiremnt that I interface with computers on my job. Heck, I even know what the shift key is for and how to use it. I am all too familiar with the back space and typeover of errors.:rolleyes:

I had completely forgotten about that.

I took typing in 9th grade. My Dad was the one that urged me to take it. I was a little uneasy about it, but it turned out to be one of the most useful classes in high school. Plus the girl to guy ratio was about 4:1.

What state can only be typed with the left hand?
What state can only be typed with the right hand?

using the typical touch-type method of course.

I can type pretty decent. The keyboard on my parents computer makes it almost impossible to type well with more than two fingers. it is very stiff and stubborn.

I took typing in H.S., but didn't use skill so lost It before PC's lol. One finger gets me by (slowly). I also can't spell worth crap, need spell check a lot, Oh Well! I don't get paid to be good at it. Yes I remember, Now is the time ---- practice.

I never took typing and am a computer programmer. I can type plenty fast enough for what I need to do. I would say I'm in the 50-60 wpm range. I don't type the way I am supposed to though. I use 3 fingers on each hand and never use my pinkys for anything.

Went to a Catholic H.S. Took typing for 4 years, and as it turns out, I needed this skill. Been in computers for 30 years!

WPM: 90+
