Typing Symbol Sentences

You will find most of the symbols on the top (numbers) row of keys on your keyboard. You type the symbol by holding down the shift-key while pressing the number. The numbers are challenging because you have to go up an extra row from the home-row, but the symbols are even more so because you have to use the other hand to hold the shift-key. The biggest part of the challenge can be finding the home row again after the symbol is typed. This tests combines numbers, letters and symbols to give you a workout that covers all of the unique challenges of typing symbols.
