-I have been practicing longer and at higher speeds (180 up to 225 WPM).
-I have been practicing hard copy and repeating each sentence 3 times. If I make any kind of error, I repeat the sentence another 3 times to help ensure accuracy.
-I didn't stress out while taking the tests. I allowed my fingers to take full control. I shut down my brain and went into auto pilot.
-I made sure I used up my full 1 hour of transcription time and went over my tests very carefully before turning them in.
-I was generally happy. I was in high spirits, getting enough rest, and content and proud that I was accomplishing small tasks in my daily to-do list.
I think all the above culminated in my passes. What are the factors that allow you to pass your tests?
