Default anyone trying for proofreader at tb?

Is anyone taking the test?

I'm curious, but too busy to try.

Plus, my grammar is good, but I have to admit I don't have the AP guidelines memorized.

If you try it out for size, fill the rest of us in on what the pay is like, etc!

(This is supposed to be open for anyone who is a level 4 or 5 to try)

I found the grammar test to be challenging, though not impossible. It tests concepts that are a common source of confusion for average folks. I made a 90% on it.

However, I have yet to see an assignment in the proofreading section.

I took the test and passed, but there are no open orders for me to pick up at the moment.

I accidentally clicked the "Submit" button before finishing, so I failed. But I will retake it in April.

Thanks for the heads up; I'll take it and see what happens Fortunately I'm intimately familiar with AP style thanks to my newspaper years.

Good luck to everyone!
