Quick question - are the following sentences correct English?:

This guide will:

  • steer you in the right direction for fastest results, the easiest way.
  • ...other benefits...
  • ...other benefits...

Thank you teacher ;-)

Let's see the whole thing.
The other bullets need to start with a verb.

Why not: Guide you through INSTEAD of steer you in the right direction?

Do you mean you want to write '... guide you through the right direction"? That doesn't make sense.

I have no problem with "steer", but I would prefer "... steer you in the direction of the easiest, fastest results."

Thanks very much to all of you. I like your suggestion emsr2d2, but I think I will drop the word "easiest" and use this instead:

"This guide will:


  • steer you in the right direction for the fastest possible results.
  • "

That would be correct English, right? (yes/no please ;-))
