    Default dates of entries?

    Teacher, is this sentence OK?

    The dates of the entries on the ledger on page 1 are incorrect. The dates should be February 1, 2010, March 1, 2010 and April 1, 2010.

    Yes (but there are two sentences not one.)

    Yes, it's OK, but I would use "in the ledger".

    Default Re: dates of entries?

    I would use semicolons to separate the dates, since there are already commas in the dates.

    February 1, 2010; March 1, 2010; and April 1, 2010.
