407 wpm...

I don't profess to be a fast reader, though. Most of my reading these days comes from either my LJ friends list (which reaches around 10-20K words a day) or factual websites (such as Wikipedia). I did read a huge amount for my history, however, including a whole book on Stalin & Kruschev on the train to Cambridge for my (unsuccessful) interview last year.

i got this "You read at 70 words per minute."

it also said : Your comprehension is 27%.

You got 3 correct answers out of 11.
by the way my reading comprehension is at a 2nd grade level so i don't expect much out of what i can do, and it had too much reading.

860wpm, 82% comprehension.

I would say the high comphrension score is mainly luck in this case for me...
My comphrension falls below 30% when I have to read out loud as I found out when I was assessed, but even reading normally I would say its about 40-50%.
