If you're *really* serious about, investigate legal or medical proofreading. I did legal proofreading for a stretch, and they can't afford to get things wrong.

Hello all,

You were also so helpful that I thought someone here might be able to offer advice. I want to improve my proofreading skills. I know the process pretty well, but need practice at it. I also have a set of books that I am working through. What I am really looking for is a source of proofreading practice material, preferably with answer keys of some sort. I've been googling around and found a couple good practice tools and exercises, and I've searched the archives here and found a good booklist. Other recommendations are also always welcome.

Thanks!

All the best,
Ryan
