Hows ur proofreadin skillz?

The Society for Editors and Proofreaders has made available a short proofreading test you can use to test your proofreading skills.

I scored 267/330 (80%) which is a pass, but they say I "need more training."

Of course, some of the items where I was marked wrong are things I would argue with. And I stared at one question and I knew the answer was different depending on whether you went by US or UK punctuation guidelines, but I stubbornly chose the American answer. Even though it's a British test. The other way just looks wrong, okay? :P

Ok u guis, POST YOUR RESULTS! DO IT!

ETA: Don't cheat and read comments to this post before taking the test! :P
