Theory Thursday: How To Drop For 60-80 WPM Students

I first posted the following video on this blog in 2012, when I was still a student. This video was the first time I came across this type of advice. I introduced the video with the following explanation: “Here’s a video with advice on how to drop when being tested.

When I started taking speed tests, I didn’t think about this method. My method was always to try to get every word…Different strokes for different folks; literally. Lol.

Everybody has their own methods. However, this video definitely gave me something to think about. I greatly appreciate the speaker’s advice.”

Once again, I’m posting this video in the hopes that it might help some students. Remember, as always, do what works best for you!
