i need help to study for a writting test i have to take for college, i have most trouble with commas and writing style. Can you help?
In addition to reading the pages on this website (click on the Punctuation tab, on the Navigation Bar), the best advice I can give is to visit your school library and read Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss.
For a very good (and very brief) introduction to good writing style, look for The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E. B. White while you're in the library.
