SAT essay prompts always keep to the same basic format.
Not only is the prompt format consistent from test to test, but what you're actually asked to do (discuss how an author builds an argument) also remains the same across different test administrations.
The thing to remember here is that College Board is not asking you for your opinion on a topic or a text.
Your essay will be an objective analysis of a speech or argument.
Our essay topics have been closely modeled on those in the SAT.
You can also do the essays given in the first section of each of the tests in the Official Study Guide.On every SAT Essay, you'll have to read an argument meant to persuade a broad audience and discuss how well the author argues his or her point.The passage you'll have to read will change from test to test, but you'll always need to analyze the author's argument and write a coherent and organized essay explaining this analysis.There are some in the new SAT book, and now I've chosen to write a sample essay of my own as well.Here is an example of a new essay topic: Official SAT Essay #1 PDFHere is my sample essay for that topic: My Sample Essay For the New SATAnd while we're at it, here are some free official essay topics for you to study and practice: Official new SAT Essay #1AOfficial new SAT Essay #2AOfficial new SAT Essay #2 PDFOfficial new SAT Essay #3 PDFOfficial new SAT Essay #4 PDFI strongly suggest that you write the essays by hand using the blank essay space provided in the book, to get a feel for the length and the timing.In your essay, analyze how [the author] uses one or more of the features listed in the box above (or features of your own choice) to strengthen the logic and persuasiveness of his argument.Be sure that your analysis focuses on the most relevant features of the passage.You’ll have 50 minutes to write the essay, which will come at the end of the SAT.You’re given two double-sided, lined pages to write on, so be sure you can include everything you want to say in that space, but don’t feel you need to fill up all the pages.All content of site and practice tests copyright © 2019 Study Mode, LLC.Did you know that the new SAT (debuting in March of 2016) has a new essay format?
