"worked exceptionally good"

 

"Good" cannot be used to describe a verb which it is doing in this sentence. To modify verbs you must use an adverb. The adverb form of "good" is "well."

You should use 'well', an adverb, rather than 'good'. An adverb modifies a verb, an adverb, or an adjective. An adjective modifies a noun.

'Well' is an adverb and tells how the members worked together. 'Exceptionally' is an adverb that modifies 'well'.

 

The members of the committee worked exceptionally well together.
