What textbooks/resources do you recommend for the General Proofreading course, and when should I get them?

  1. I have signed up for the General Proofreading course – should I buy an Ipad before starting the course? If I purchase the CMOS on my laptop, will I be able to access it on the Ipad I buy later?

    1. Hi, Marcella! An iPad isn’t absolutely necessary for the GP course, and if you do decide to use an iPad to annotate, you don’t need it for the first few modules. Many people find that their clients prefer them to use Microsoft Word or Google Docs to annotate for general proofreading. You can access CMOS on any device that has a browser and Wi-Fi access. Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. Any reason not to use an older (16th or 15th edition) version of CMOS? Older editions – I'm talking a physical book, which some of us oldsters prefer – are more affordable than the 17th and latest edition. I realize page number references will be different, but actual content shouldn't have changed much (right?). Please advise. Thank you.

    1. The course style guide is CMOS 17th edition. Some information will be outdated in the older versions.
