Title of post: AP Style bootcamp: flagging your AP style book

The AP Style Bootcamp video was informative and a great idea. I wish I had this video to watch before I took my introduction to journalism course because I used the AP stylebook religiously in that class. The flags are a going to be a good and quick way for me to edit my news releases and articles I have to write for this class. Since I have had to use the AP stylebook in my previous class I am pretty comfortable with using it, although I do have to admit my weakest point is punctuation. I will probably take a day this week to read up on that section until I become familiar with the requirements. The Clean your Copy tutorial and quiz along with the AP Style bootcamp have both helped me to understand the grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.
Thank you,
