Nancy: Do you mean exercises 7 and 9 in Ch. 2 of Barron's Business English? If that is so, check the English Grammar Handbook on the AU Write Site for more information, and I'll try to find you some more drills. If I've misunderstood the question, send me an e-mail.

I am working on assignment 2 the paragraph summary and have a question on the length of the assignment. I just want to know how in-depth I should go, the assignment instructions state a topic sentence and 3 or 4 supporting sentences with a conclusion. I have a rough copy that is about 7 sentences long is that adequate or should I get more detailed?

Cheers!
Tony

Tony: Read the example carefully to get an idea of the detail needed. The summary should probably be between 6 and 8 sentences long, so you are within that parameter, but tutors don't usually count unless something just seems to be too long and detailed. One way to get more in is to write more complex sentences. I hope that is helpful.

Thank you for answering my question, I was just a little unsure of myself.

Cheers!
