How do I translate this?

Today I completed 2 chapters of my grammar book

The grammar book being an instructional book on Chinese grammar with exercises.

My best guess

今天我做两章完了语法的书

  • Not a native speaker, my attempt: 今天我完成阅读了两篇语法书章。

    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'.

  • 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 yes... finish reading the two chapters, including doing the exercises... Thanks user58955. I think with that change I'd be pretty close? Commented Mar 30, 2014 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. Commented Mar 30, 2014 at 0:31
