  3. 5

    Great course -well worth completing.

  4. 3

    Hello, so far I like the course but there are some problems I feel I have to outline: in the second module the majority of links are non-existing. In addition, the quiz of that module score 40 points for all questions asked when there are only 36 in total, I would have notified it to someone but there are not means to notify errors except by reviewing the course here.

  5. Excellent.


    Excellent insight into what it takes to be a proofreader.
