About your FREE proofreading exercises

Most proofreading courses include vast swathes of proofreading exercises in their manuals or course work, which means the cheeky little blighters actually expect you to pay for the stuff.

Here at The No-Nonsense Proofreading Course, we'll be providing you with a plentiful supply of printable proofreading exercises, gratis. Plus, the eBook itself points you to a near-limitless supply of exercises that will not only help you get in practice but will form a crucial part of your promotional activity once you start looking for paying proofreading work.

The proofreading exercises above can be used in conjunction with the proofreading course itself, particularly after you’ve read Chapter 5 and are armed with your proofreaders’ marks from Chapter 3.

These proofreading exercises are designed to realistically simulate the kind of proofreading work you’re likely to encounter in the real world. Many proofreading courses provide you with exercises that are utterly crammed with errors, but you are unlikely to come across this kind of thing in a professional environment. So, we’ve created proofreading exercises which contain only a few, hard-to-spot errors. Remember, once you’re carrying out real-world proofreading assignments, you’re going to be dealing with people who take pride in their work. Errors won’t simply jump off the page and announce themselves, you’ll have to go looking for them. Sometimes (in fact, quite often) it can be like looking for the proverbial needle in the equally proverbial haystack.

Best of luck.

“I am one of those many fools who paid a huge amount of money for a useless course. This book... has opened so many doors for me. I now look on Mike as my mentor as I embark on a career. Thank you Mike.”
Emma Steel, Proofreader and International Structural Editor.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and am so glad that I decided to take it... the whole experience was invaluable. My... proofreading service is now well established and your course played no small part in getting it off the ground.”

Rachel Gee, Trainee Proofreader.

“What can I say? Worth every penny and then some! God Bless! This is a fabulous course.”
