Test Yourself on AP Style

by Michael Sweeney, Professor; Associate Director for Graduate Studies

If you’d like to see how well you know Associated Press style, try taking this test without looking in the stylebook.

INSTRUCTIONS: Find the errors. Each sentence contains zero, one or two errors addressed by the AP Stylebook. If the sentence is correct as written and this were an actual test, you would not change it. (Leaving it correct as written would give you full credit for that sentence.) Do not delete information unless it is redundant.
