Accuracy! Accuracy is more important than moving your fingers faster when you’re working on getting past that 100WPM mark :slight_smile:

You shouldn’t try to move your fingers faster than they’re currently going unless you have at least a 90% accuracy. If your current typing accuracy is lower, you should slow down and work on accuracy before moving your fingers faster. You might even improve your WPM moving slightly slower for that accuracy bump.
