SAT Essay Writing Tips
- Maintain formal style and objective tone. Avoid "I" and "you." Do not use slang.
- Use varied sentence structure.
- Write neatly.
- Use clear transitions.
- Use short, relevant quotes from the text.
- Don't worry about official terms for things. "Appeal to the emotions" is fine instead of specifically referencing "pathos," and "comparison of two things" can be used instead of referring to a metaphor. If you do know the official terms, though, feel free to use them!
