    Cool a good command

    Hello!

    Is it correct to say: "It's necessary to have a good understanding and command of this grammatical point before writing your report."

    Thank you!

    Will

    I agree, but I wonder if the use of both understanding and command is redundant.

    You can't really have a command without understanding.
