Quick Help is at the beginning of nearly every chapter in the grammar sections and at the beginning of many of the writing chapters as well. It’s a quick look at possible trouble spots that the chapter addresses, with examples illustrating a problem and the solution. In some cases, the examples and explanations are the only advice you need. In other cases, the links lead to content pages with more detailed information. Please see the steps below on how to complete Quick Help and similar Writer's Help 2.0 pages.
