There are errors that are very common, that many people make in spelling. Often times, other mistakes come from typing the wrong key or typing too fast. In proof reading, it is your job to spot these errors and correct them. Also, one of the more difficult tasks that the proof reader needs to do is to spot grammatical errors. So, it is important to know the words that people often misuse. This could be simple mistakes like misspelling then instead of than. Or, they could be using the wrong tense of a word.
