Have you ever read an essay prompt, paused in a moment of soul-aching panic, and realized you have absolutely no idea how to answer it? Or perhaps you’ve never had trouble knowing how to answer the deep philosophic prompts they expect a 17 year old to answer, but you’ve never exactly had “of literary merit” evidence? Perhaps you fall into a third category of those that do pretty well overall, but are still chasing that high-scoring essay.
Good news, we’re here to help.
In this series of 10 posts, we will go over each of the major themes the SAT has asked about before in essay prompts, and help you prepare to write those essays.
Each post includes a list of prompts, recommended reading (books, articles, and TED talks), potential essay mistakes, and links to successful essays. Read one to jog your memory before the test. Read all of them and be ultra-prepared for your SAT essay. This resource is here for you (for free!)
