To get an overview of your grammar skills, check out this 60-item Grammar Test. Allow yourself at least half an hour to complete the test. After you answer the last item, you will see your score on 20 different grammar skills (listed below).

You will receive two numbers for your score. For example, the test has three questions on vague pronoun reference. If you answered two correctly, you would see your percentage of correct answers (66%), followed by the number of questions answered correctly out of all questions on that skill (2/3).

Print your score. Then use the table below to find the Exercise Central activities that will help you improve any weak scores. If you have several weak areas, work on only one or two at a time.
