all parts of the PN is important...the only way you can get better at it is by practicing. you can download some typing softwares and practice for 15-20 mins each day....they are going to help you improve your typing speed.

best of luck

let me be honest with you and tell you the naked truth.

DO NOT GO TO CS IF YOU CAN NOT FINISH PN IN MINUTES
i failed in cs and i used to finish the pn in 10 minutes or 12 sometimes.
but in the real exam the problem is not typing fast or slow! the problem if you can remember what you just asked the SP so you can type it...

so u need not to practice on typing itself rather typing what you practiced with your friends (encounters)
so it is really better to delay your exam until you feel satisfied about your typing >>>
this is according to my experience...
I am very very good at all things except PN
thanks

Hey Buddy ,,

There are a couple of things you can do :

1) Learn the abbreviations put in FA, they will certainely help (( instead of typing "patient" you will go with "ptn" ..... etc )) , the more abb. you have the quicker you're gonna finish up.

2) find someone you enjoying chatting with online ( preferrably of the other sex to leep you motivated ) and chat !! use facebok chat or skype !! I used to chat online alot and now i type like a secretary ! lol
it erally really helps
