This Spanish word is always preceded by an "a". Can you guess what it means?

"A rajatabla" basically means rigorous or strict and by the book.

  • ¡Ella lleva su trabajo a rajatabla!

         She always completes her work rigorously!

  • Su padre es muy duro. ¡Lleva todo a rajatabla!

           His father is very tough. He does everything by the book!
