Typing Test: Moby Dick

Typing Test: Moby Dick

Time: 1 Minute
Skill Level: Expert

Taken from the American classic Moby Dick, this free typing test is fairly complicated, and will test your keyboarding skills to the max. Written by Herman Melville and first published in 1851, the style of this excerpt is a bit ponderous with some big complicated words as well as a higher number of commas and semi-colons than your typical typing test. Oh yes, there are also some unexpected capital letters, so be ready to reach for the shift key as well.
