# Interactive Proofreading Quizzes and Tutorials

Welcome to DP's interactive proofreading quizzes and tutorials! These quizzes cover corrections you should make in the proofreading rounds.

You can use these pages in two different ways. If you are not yet familiar with the proofreading guidelines you should use the tutorial mode by clicking on the 'Tutorial' links. If you already know the proofreading guidelines you can use them as quizzes only by clicking the 'Quiz' links.

## Basic Proofreading Quizzes and Tutorials

This section is designed as an overview of the most important and frequently used proofreading guidelines. The pages cover items that you are likely to see when proofreading BEGINNERS ONLY and EASY projects.

These tutorials and quizzes only address the standard guidelines. Some projects have special instructions, particularly for books in non-English languages or with unusual features, so be sure to read the Project Comments carefully on each project you proofread.

The "extra practice" pages do not cover any additional guidelines beyond the standard five pages; they are included to allow you to try the same skills on a new page.
