    Rather than

    Hi Teachers and Friends,

    I wrote like this:

    "A more effective method is applied to obtain the result, rather than your method which does not itself help here."

    I doubt some points as follows:

    1. Between "rather than" and "than", which is correct?

    2. Is the comma correct?

    3. Can "itself" be replaced by "singly"?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Rather than

    I'd put it simply as:

    "To obtain the result a more effective method than yours can be applied."
