This shouldn't be that hard but it takes me about 2 seconds to type the longest word but You should type the short ones like oregon or ohio first and go to the long ones like california and massachusetts. I think it is kinda hard I have gotten 38.

Some easy states are fairly easy to remember. There's North and South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, New York, Jersey and Hampshire, also Rhode Island, Vermont, Delaware and Maine. There are also a couple others but I'm not here to list all the states!

keep running into something I've never seen on another quiz, where if I start the next state too quickly it will not identify the one I've fully typed, ex, just wound up with "kentuckytennesseevirginia" in my input box, it won't register kentucky unless I delete everything else. The faster I've gotten the more I run into this problem. It's incredibly frustrating, as I would've gotten all 50 several times by now if not for randomly running into this and having to take the time to delete and retype states.

It's not impossible... but at that point it just become muscle memory. Instead of how fast you can realistically type, it's measuring how fast you can type something that is totally muscle memorized and requires no thought.

I've done this test many times before, but upon doing it most recently I see that the last few states have been removed from the alphabetical order the rest of the list follows. West Virginia is somehow before Washington and even Virginia in the list, and I don't understand the reason why.

I have got all 100 a few times. Thought I'd share a few pointers. 1. Get an order down and always do it in the same order. 2. Do the long states first (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania). 3. Don't put spaces in words like North Dakota. Just type northdakota 4. Take the time to make a definite break at the end of each state. This was my toughest thing. I kept putting the first letter of the next state at the end of one state...that then makes me have to backspace. I've found that if I make even one error in this regard, I don't make 100. 5. Don't play games until you've done something productive with your day!
