    Try the following grammar test devised by The [London] Times. Go to this link and scroll down the page. On the right hand side, click on 'Take the Times Test'.
    When you've finished, have a look at the Style Guide (there's a link to it from the quiz answers).
    Have fun!

    Pretty cool. Not just a grammar test, though, but spelling as well. I missed some looking for grammatical errors and missing spelling mistakes.

    I got two wrong. I missed the spelling correction of "nave" (but only because I have no idea what it is [​IMG]), and I kept the word "borstal" even though I was incorrect in using it because "borstals no longer exist."
    But I learned a thing or two, and I've made a mental note to myself as a result: I must quit using the word dinosaur.
