Holly Emmert2 Stars Out Of 5March 30, 2009Holly EmmertAlthough 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.
