    Word of "divide"

    Hi,

    Eg. How to master the English language can simply be divided into the three points below.

    Also, and perhaps more naturally:
    " can be broken down into the three points below".
    or
    " can be summarized in the three points below".

    I wouldn't use advice in the plural- even when different people gave different pieces of advice.
