Grammar test

For those of you who know me really well, I'm a stickler for correct English grammar, which is part of the reason why I do transcription part time. I also taught writing to college students when I was a graduate student at UCSB and a lecturer at San Francisco State University. It annoys me to hell when people, especially professionals like doctors, use incorrect grammar and spelling, especially in professional documents!

Anyway, here's the link for the test.

Here are my results:

English Genius
You scored 100% Beginner, 92% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 94% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!

Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

yeah, i did a lot better than i expected--besides, it only really matters on stuff that's more professional. nothing annoys me more than bad grammar and spelling in a professional document.
