I haven't measured it in a long time.  When I was in middle school, I took a keyboarding test, and I think my speed was around 60 words per minute.  I could be a little faster or slower than that now... not sure.

However, one of the key things is the ability to copy/paste/edit quickly.

SPEED EDITING TIP:  Hold down the "shift" key on the keyboard and use the arrow keys to highlight text (without having to take your hands off the keyboard -- the mouse just slows you down!).  Then you can control+X, control+C, and control+V to cut, copy, and paste.  smiley

A lot! When he is typing code on the computer and correcting errors before I even see them I am amazed!

If he did not have to correct his typos he would probably be towards 150
