BWC85 Basic Grammar Essentials

The BWC85 Basic Grammar Essentials course contains an overview of all of the areas of English usage important to business writers.

Students normally start with pre-test scores of 30% to 50% and end the course with post-test scores of 85% to 95%.

Each lesson also has a pre-test and post-test to show you that you have learned the skills. The tests are scored immediately so you can see how you did. Your instructor receives a copy of the test to look over and see whether you need any coaching.
