The best online typing test is through Typingtest.com, according to About. This test is easy and accurate in giving a true picture of typing speed because the material is cohesive, and takers cannot use the backspace key to correct mistakes. The test also shows how much time is left.
Other good typing tests are those through Fast Fingers, Typing.com and Speed Typing Online. One con of the tests through Fast Fingers is that words are random, making for a disconnected effort. Typing.com tests via only one sentence, and Speed Typing Online uses its materials from literature, so the likelihood of unfamiliar words, punctuation and material is high.
