The TOEFL no longer tests grammar separately, so the writing passages are evaluated for grammatical accuracy. Therefore, students should study grammatical structures until they flow naturally in their writing. Likewise, students want to focus on spelling and punctuation conventions. Though the temptation is always to save time by omitting the planning stage, this is a mistake; a focused and organized passage scores high, and such structured writing requires planning. Students should time themselves when practicing the writing test to develop personal strategies for completing the task well.
