Testing, testing

Interactive online grammar tests can be great tools for learning, and they are fun. Here is a Web site that has various grammar tests: The Guide to Grammar and Writing, sponsored by the Capital Community College Foundation in Hartford, Conn.The site has pull-down menus, and you can see how much you know about parts of speech, punctuation, sentence structure (even diagramming) and other grammar topics. The site is aimed at college students, but almost anyone who writes could find something of value.For grammar geeks, these tests can be addictive.
