Gradesaver Essay Editing Reviews
First Professional Editing Services – Then Publishing
What should you do in case English is not your native language, but you have a strong desire to publish a book or manuscript? If there a way to obtain A+ instead of B or even C by avoiding tiny, silly mistakes that decrease the overall impression from the essay? Finally, how can a student overcome problems with formatting, as there are so many writing styles today?
Writing and editing professional texts – here is a way out! Unlike buying a custom essay written from scratch, this service exists for those students who know the subject well but are not sure about their grammar, spelling, vocabulary choice, or else. The mission of our team is to check every paper carefully for common mistakes as well as plagiarism and fix it so that the customer will not face problems with the teachers or publishing houses, depending on his purposes.
Once you hire an editor professional, he/she will scan your attached piece of writing carefully to detect any gaps that could prevent you from earning A+ or some other benefits. Overall, our editors will check and fix the following elements:

Something More Than English Grammar Check Website
Right, this manuscript editing service is not just for students. However, students are our most common customers as they face problems with writing more often than young writers or professionals from other fields. Our initial professional dissertation editing services is academic essay writing, so it makes sense our academic writing team can handle any proofreading or editing assignment.
What we need from each client is his or her expectations regarding the final draft. We can completely change the structure, tone, harvard format, or even rewrite some weak parts. Our online editing company can offer a separate paragraph checker if you are sure about the rest of the work. Thus, we do not limit your freedom – choose only those parts you worry about.
We can say the same about huge projects like dissertations or books – if you do not want us to look at some parts, just specify the sections you would like us to check and fix. Most often, graduates order Literature Review and Methodology editing as these sections of a dissertation include a lot of complex terms and professional language.
Our cheap English writing corrector is especially useful for people who experience problems with English. Those are international students and authors who come to the United States or the United Kingdom to find inspiration. Our writing and editing teams are made of native-speakers only. They have a rich vocabulary, so they will help to find the most proper word or phrase in any situation.
If you want us to scan your paper only for grammar mistakes, send ‘edit my grammar only’ request, and we will do that for you. Of course, you may download and start using different types of software that promise to fix grammar in any language. However, even the best apps of that type are not always 100% accurate. After all, those are not people who know some specific words and terms well enough not to confuse them with other words and replace automatically. Besides, it is critical to differentiate various English language dialects, as some teachers are strict about that.

In booklet form, 159 literature study guides are available, costing about $6 to $10 each. But more than 250 are available online, and all can be viewed free. Downloading them as PDF files costs $5 to $10 each. A comparatively paltry 39 CliffsNotes for literature are available for mobile at $1.99 each for the iPhone.
CliffsNotes, owned by Wiley Publishing, also offers free podcasts called CramCasts, which are three- to five-minute overviews of books with a plot summary.
“CliffsNotes is one of the most thorough, one of the most insightful,” Professor Fisher said. “If a student wanted to use it along with the text, it would be worthwhile.” He liked that, for some books, the complete text was included with the study guide on line. But CliffsNotes lost points for some dated writing. He looked at notes describing “Candide” in terms of Voltaire’s life and said: “No one does biographical criticism anymore. They haven’t since the 1970s.”
SparkNotes, which is owned by Barnes & Noble and began in 1999, is a newcomer compared with CliffsNotes, but it is well established with today’s students. It offers a library of 690 guides, including literature, math, history and biology, all free on the Web.
Most of the guides are available as e-books for Barnes & Noble’s electronic reader, the Nook, or any device that runs Nook software, which is available for BlackBerrys and iPhones, and handsets with Google’s Android operating system. The electronic editions of the guides and downloadable PDFs are $4.95. The No Fear Shakespeare series, which offers a modern translation next to the original texts, costs $4.99 for each guide. While those are not available as downloadable PDFs, they are available on iTunes for $4.99 each.
About 150 of the SparkNotes are still available in book form for $4.95 each, and the book form of No Fear Shakespeare costs $5.35.
Professor Fisher said SparkNotes’ analysis was more contemporary than that offered on some of the other sites. “It is a generally useful, more nuanced interpretation than the others. Of all the ones I looked at, I’d probably say SparkNotes is the best choice,” he said.
Shmoop, though, is the newcomer. It has been online for only 18 months. It has set itself apart from the stalwarts by synopsizing the expected canon, like Camus’s “The Stranger” and Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” as well as by analyzing more contemporary and popular culture works. Among its 600 study guides are guides for best sellers like Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and song lyrics like Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi,” which it likens to “The Great Gatsby,” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.” Though Shmoop says the authors come “from Ph.D. and masters’ programs at Stanford, Harvard, U.C. Berkeley and other top universities” the site still misspelled the last name of Virginia Woolf, the English author. Guides on topics like civics and economics also are available.
All of the guides are free online. They are also available for 99 cents to $2.99 for the Sony Reader, Kindle and Nook e-readers and iPhone, Android and BlackBerry smartphones using the Nook reader app. Shmoop also sells PDF versions for $5. Study guides for Advanced Placement and college entrance exams are $10 to $25.
Dr. Fisher liked the idea behind Shmoop’s “Why Should I care?” section. It explains the satire in “Candide” by comparing it to modern satires like “The Simpsons” and “The Family Guy.” The problem, he said, is that the writing strains to relate to students. “It makes an interesting attempt to be hip,” he said, “but it is just so high school-y.”
GradeSaver boasts that a majority of its authors are Ivy League-educated. The site offers more than 400 guides covering literature, poetry and short stories, with two film guides. Professor Fisher said that the writing was among the best. “It is quite readable, if you can get around the blue jeans ads, which are right in the middle of the text.”
The site specializes in essays. It sells copies of 712 college essays that the site said landed the authors in top colleges. It says it also carries 2,715 literature essays. The essays are available through a subscription ranging from $3 for a three days (subscribers are automatically enrolled in the $7-a-month program unless they cancel), up to a one-time charge of $50 a year. GradeSaver has an editing service as well, with charges ranging from $8 a page for proofreading to $150 to edit an essay of a maximum of 1,000 words within 24 hours.
The site offers a forum site where students post opinions (on ”Call of the Wild:” “boring ... zzzzzz!”) and cries for help, (“I NEED HELP**ASAP**ON THE UTOPIAS IN CANDIDE”).
Some sites did not make the grade at all. The guides from PinkMonkey — __ which also incorporates notes from TheBestNotes.com and Barron’s Booknotes — were “the least thoughtful, the least insightful and the most disjointed,” Dr. Fisher said.
BookRags, offered only partial summaries free, and Professor Fisher said what he found there was too elementary. “BookRags is for really desperate people,” he said. “It’s simplistic and it forces people to pay up front.” He found the quality of the writing on Bookwolf offensive. “They overuse the passive voice, then they have a lot of rhetorical questions. It’s banal.”
He advised students to use study guides as additional material to the books. “Nothing can substitute for the original text,” he said.
Professor Fisher also had advice for teachers. “I make my students submit their papers through turnitin.com,” which is a plagiarism search engine. He says it is very effective at forcing students to offer some original writing, if not some original thought.Continue reading the main story
