Default Typing speed and step 2 CS

Hi folks,

My typing speed is about 30 words per minute. Is it enough to deal with patient note during the step 2 CS? If you already pass the exam, what typing speed did have?

And one more question. If you make typos while filling patient note should you fix them immediately and waste a time or skip them and try to finish patient note as much as you can and only then fix typos if you have some time left?

I would greatly appreciate any comments.

Thank you in advance.
