If you're one of those people for whom test-taking is another way to prove how smart you are, here's one for you. How strong are your proofreading skills?
Freelance Proofreading and Copy-editing - Proofreading test:
"The following passage contains several common errors of the type you are likely to come across in a set of proofs (though not as closely clustered as here, I hope). This test should not be taken too seriously, but since you have nowhere better to be at 9:15 on a Thursday morning than here, I hope that you'll find it fun, at least."Thanks to Visual Thesaurus for pointing me here. Yes, I took the test on a Thursday morning. I'm glad I have spell check, grammar resources, style guides, and good friends to edit my work.
How did you do?
