Well, I’ve ordered the required books for my extension course at U.C. Berkeley (internal link) and I am out $152. Since I am spending money, I thought it best to continue. I’ve now signed up for an on-line course on punctuation and grammar at UniversalClass.com. (external link).
My goal is to get grounded in the basics of grammar so I can concentrate fully on the editing portion of the Berkeley course. I don’t want to take time to learn what a gerund is when I can learn now. The UniversalClass program is designed to take 12 hours to complete and there is assistance from a teacher if I have questions. I’ll have posts in the future about what this course is like and how I am doing.
