Hello everyone, I had a terrible experience with the CBEST Writing exam. I passed all other exams, but I failed several times for the CBEST Writing exam. The scores were either 29 or 33. I need 37 to pass it. I usually have Usage and Structure and Conventions problems: Usage: the extent to which the writing shows care and precision in word choice Structure and Conventions: the extent to which the writing is free of errors in syntax, paragraph structure, sentence structure, and mechanics (e.g., spelling, punctuation, and capitalization) For grammar problems, I read Writing Skills Success in 20 Minutes a Day, Writing: Grammar, Usage, and Style (CliffsNotes), and 501 Grammar and Writing Questions. I know I have some grammar issues, but it is not too many; however, the usage issues bother me a lot. I am not a native language speaker, so what I said and write is different from a native language speaker. Is there any suggestion book? Besides of reading and doing grammar books, I also practiced writing an essay or several paragraphs every day, and I submitted my essay to Grammarly and other tutors. It seemed I had different usage issues each time. How can I avoid usage issues in a short time and how to pass the CBEST Writing exam? Can I submit my essay to this website to ask a professional tutor to edit? Thank you.
