Product Description

Practice finding and correcting workplace errors! Builds real-life skills using sample business documents. The material is divided into six sections:

Section I consists of proofreader marks and is subdivided into six categories: paragraphing, spacing, size, punctuation, position, and insertion and deletion.

Section II presents, in brief form, the rules of English that will be used, when applicable, throughout this set.

Section III is concerned with punctuation errors and contains individual documents dealing with such problem areas as the comma, the exclamation point, the dash, the colon, and others.

Section IV deals with capitalization errors and contains individual exercises that stress such problem areas as the salutation and complimentary closing, a phrase or sentence following a colon, the first word of every section of an outline, and others.

Section V is concerned with general errors such as spelling, numerical, and typographical.

Section VI is a review section that deals with several communication documents, each containing a variety of errors.

Includes 50 reproducible exercises for high school students.

    Although thin, this workbook does provide practice in proofreading. First, it should be mentioned that Sections I and II are two pages each. For a list of proofreading marks (I) this is sufficient, but for a summary of the rules of English (II) this is rather abbreviated. Section III has 13 exercises in correcting punctuation, Section IV has 22 exercises in correcting capitalization, and Section V has six exercises in general correcting, for a total of 41 exercises, not 50 as the back of the book states. There are also reviews at the end of the book, but while our copy had answers for five, it had only four of the actual reviews. Perhaps a little more proofreading should have been done on the book itself. Still, my daughter is successfully using the material that is there to refresh her proofreading skills. She enjoyed working through all of the Editor in Chief series, and was looking for a little bit more. This book works for the "little bit more" and for an introduction to proofreader marks, but for more substance I would recommend Editor in Chief.
