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!
