    Smile to and for

    Dear teachers,

    those prepositions continue pluzzing me (around? out?, something else?)

    the question:

    CVF - A guide to creating X.

    I was wondering if it should be "for", not "to". Or... would be both aceptable?

    Many thanks

    They're just puzzling you.

    And it's "Guide to". However, "Guide" can work on its own, and may be followed by the word "for": "CVF - the essential guide for anyone who wants..."
