Not a native speaker, my attempt: 今天我完成阅读了两篇语法书章。 – Steve Mar 29 '14 at 15:05
今天我做了两章语法书的练习... btw, '做两章完了' is ungrammatical, it should be '做完了两章'. – user58955 Mar 29 '14 at 15:20
The word "complete" is quite unclear. It seems currently, some native speakers here interpret it as "finish the exercises of two chapters". But, do you mean "finish reading two chapters, and get their exercises done"? – Stan Mar 29 '14 at 16:05
Stan yes... finish reading the two chapters, including doing the exercises... Thanks user58955. I think with that change I'd be pretty close? – Samuel Parsonage Mar 30 '14 at 0:30

hi user3306356, except I'm not talking about the exercises specifically, I mean reading the entire chapters, and also doing the exercises at the end. – Samuel Parsonage Mar 30 '14 at 0:31
