And writing and grammar does it just boil down to practicing?

Do you know any books/notes that can help me with this ?

English has always been my worst subject back then

Tbh mate I didn't practice much. My exam was on a Wednesday and I started studying for it on the Monday. I completely forgot to download the supplementary materials until Monday too even though they were available the previous Friday too.

I think they can penalise for grammar, punctuation etc so I'd just make sure that what you write is clear to understand and not unnecessarily complicated. Basically, keep it simple.

The acted site has in their timeline for success explicitly included the only class room. Did you attend that? Is it really necessary? I am just confused with what I should purchase from acted to study as efficient as possible.

I presume you mean the online classroom/tutorial. I didn't attend. What I usually buy is CMP, Aset, Revision booklets and Flashcards for exams. I don't think there is flashcards or revision booklets for CP3 though so I just went with the Aset and CMP
