  1. Pretty good

    Everything ran smoothly except one of the final quizzes marked everything as wrong despite being correct

    This course is for American grammar which differs from that used in the UK. In the UK we use single quotes then double for a quote within a quote, US is the other way round. US uses more full stops, even after contractions eg Dr, Mrs, etc.

    The course says that it covers use of professional proofreading symbols and will show how to create error-free documents, neither is true.

    Even very basic words are error-laden: Spellchecking, spell-checking and spell checking are all used. Module 10 covers dependant clauses, but dependent would be better.

    The questions are riddled with errors: Proofreading backwards ‘unite by unite’; Module 17 has the questions from the next module; one module repeats those from the previous one but with different answers.

    A total mess and great disappointment.

  3. Horrible Website!!

    Ironic

    Riddled with spelling errors. Oh, sweet irony…

  5. Errors in the grammar on a course to teach you grammar.

    3

    There are a few grammatically errors in the information; for example in the section on using periods, the example for an indirect question is a direct question. There is also conflict between the rules given and the subsequent questions asked. i.e the rules for the B.C.E and A.D. capitalisation – lower case in the rules and upper case in the self assessment. As this is a course on accuracy for proofreading, these errors are gross.
