Question: 26 of 37 - Proofreading Data
Part of your co-worker's job is to review transcripts of meetings and note the particulars on a form so that accounting can plan expenditures. The information must be noted correctly, as any error may impact the overall budget of your company. You, therefore, are requested to review your co-worker's work in order to confirm its accuracy.

Read the transcriptions below and view the form. How many errors did your co-worker make?

Project: County Community College

DJ: When was the last time we met?

AL: Wednesday, the 25th.

DJ: Did we decide on the budget for the project?

AL: $45,000

DJ: Great. With that budget, I suggest sticking to print media.

AL: I've done a bit of research and think we can put together a short commercial for $2,000 and air it late night for less than $10,000. I think that will work as our target audience are unemployed people. We can use the rest for print media.

DJ: And how much will it cost to develop the print ad?

AL: Less than $1,000.

DJ: That will leave a lot left over for placement in newspapers.

AL: I've decided to place the ads in the employment section, which is a bit more expensive, but with our budget, we can afford it and I believe it will prove the most bang for the buck.

DJ: Sounds like a good plan.


A. One

Read the transcriptions below and view the form. How many errors did your co-worker make?

Project: Stanley Carpet Company

DJ: Hey Sammy, where are we at with the Stanley project?

SR: We were debating on the budget. I think we can get away with under $20,000.

DJ: Isn't this the project that we wanted to do both print and television advertising within a short blitz?

SR: Yes, I think we can pull that off for under $20,000.

DJ: I'm uncomfortable with that number. Let's bump it up to $25,000 with $2,000 for commercial development, $500 for print ads and what's left for placement.

SR: Okay, we'll use $15,000 for television commercial placement because we need the commercial running in prime time and the remaining $7,500 for print placement.

DJ: Use the bulk of that $7,500, say $4,500 for magazine and $3,000 for newspaper.

SR: Will do.
