Summary

Proofreading for Business gives students thorough practice finding and correcting the most common errors in business writing. Subjects covered in the workbook include proper nouns, spelling and word division, end punctuation and commas, word choice, agreement, facts and content, and format. The instruction section of each unit contains a general introduction, concise guidelines and suggestions for proofreading, and practice exercises. At the end of each unit, a correctly marked sample document provides a guide and review. Students then apply their skills as they proofread worksheet documents and correct the documents using standard proofreaders' marks. Two test pages provide a final check of proofreading skills.

These features are included in Proofreading for Business:

  • All worksheets and tests consist of typical office documents.
  • Students check some documents by referring to a correct original or source copy. Other assignments require students to use reference material, such as a dictionary.
  • The text includes a Style Guide that provides a list of state abbreviations, a list of proofreading hints, and a guide to business letter formats.

Proofreading for Business is designed for use in a variety of courses. The text can reinforce proofreading skills in English, keyboarding, and business communication courses. It can also serve as the text for a proofreading module of office procedures courses. The Instructor's Key provides teaching hints along with correctly marked text documents.
