Affectionately referred to by the Praktio Team as the "nit finding" game, Praktio's Precision Training: Transactional provides substantial opportunity to build intuitive "eagle-eye" awareness for common errors in contracts.
- Increase awareness of issues you might overlook in documents, with immediate feedback on every exercise.
- Build muscle memory for identifying common proofreading errors, with adaptive reinforcing exercises (one a few exercises later and another at the end of the course).
- Especially valuable for summer, junior, and incoming law firm associates: Avoid "rookie" mistakes and unfavorable early impressions by calibrating your attention to detail and precision to the exacting levels expected by law firm lawyers and clients.

"Great module—definitely helps refine proofing and editing."
Associate at Cooley LLP
"I particularly liked the Praktio online module focused on close reading for edits (the one where you pick out the 'nits') because it centered around minute errors that may often get overlooked. These types of details are hard to catch when you’ve spent a lot of time looking at the same document, and I believe the only way to get better at this type of editing is to practice. If practice is the only way to get better at editing for fine details, I would definitely rather make mistakes in training exercises as opposed to real assignments later down the line. For this reason, I found the exercise very useful."
