Default Just Passed TB's Proofreading Test

After getting a 70% on my two previous attempts, I finally passed.


The best part is that I got every question right this time. I'm so excited!

Awesome! That test was a tough one. When they first announced it, a bunch of us over at WPLH tried and failed it.

You should be proud of yourself! Congrats!

Default proofreadig test

I'm finally eligible to take this test again. I already failed it once, possibly twice. I've lost count. Do you have any secrets on how to pass the proofreading test?

The best advice that I can give is to pay close attention to spelling errors. There were about five sentences that would have been correct had it been it not been for a spelling error.


Also, I found the following links to be helpful:

Comma Trauma

Commas and Coordinating Conjunctions (FANBOYS)

The Semicolon: Not a Fancy Comma

Congratulations!

I love proofreading, but the work is snapped up so quickly that it is rare if I see any titles available.

Congrats! That's amazing! I haven't felt ready to take it yet. I'm glad you passed! I've seen a bit for L5 writers lately, so enjoy that.

I wish that those who passed were automatically approved for level 5. But I don't think it works that way.

I'm not sure if or when I'll get approved.

Oh I'm sorry! I thought they were for some reason.
