By learning a simple method of proofreading used by professional proofreaders that you can apply to any document, PROOFREADING AT THE COMPUTER gives you the proofreading skills needed to produce documents that are error-free. You will learn to proofread comparatively and get tips for checking documents with numbers, while also brushing up your knowledge of grammar and mechanics and learning how to get the most out of your word processor’s spelling and grammar checkers. While in many organizations, documents are proofread by one individual and then passed to one or more others for additional checks, this book teaches you to proofread in teams. And because more and more messages are sent by e-mail, checking e-mail for misspellings and other mistakes has become increasingly important, this book also teaches e-mail proofreading skills. Includes a student data CD.
