School teachers never hesitate to underline the importance of good grammar. While good grammar is important indeed, many students are often sadly misled into thinking that they can impress their professor with the excessive use of “fancier” grammatic constructions, such as complex sentences. So, they overflood writing with too long sentences.
As a result, it takes the reader more time and effort to read the sentence, than it should. The reader – the professor – gets irritated, and the student gets a lower grade. This is why the habit of overusing complex sentences is considered erratic, even when those sentences are grammatically correct.
In other words, this is the time to take the things into your own hands! Below, we've created a quick list of the most common errors in student collection, hoping that this knowledge will help you develop your writing skills. Never make the same mistake again!
