What are good examples for the writing SAT?
I need some broad, general examples that could fit into almost any prompt on the SAT writing portion.

On the test, if you answer with a broad prectrum, you will lose alot of points. The truth is, there is no easy way... but here's a way that worked for me - you just set it up like a check list:
-Broad/Interesting opening statement (NO QUOTES)
-Tell the subject of the writing in your own terms
-List your examples that you will be talking about
-Talk about first example, be clear but not too in detail
-Link it into how it affects the topic
-Set up transition into body 2
-Transition into body 2
-Talk about second example, clear but not too in detail
-Link it into how it affects topic
-Transition into body 3 or final paragraph
*It is recommended that you only do two body paragraphs so that your essay is well done and thought out - however, if you are good with essays, use three.
-Same steps as body 2
-Strong opening with transition phrase/word
-Re-list subject of writing and examples
-Re-explain how they tie back together
-Finish with a strong statement.
This will get you at least a nine - if you have a terrible essay but you follow this rubric.
Good LuckSource(s): Got a 680 on the writing two times and wrote two 9's with horrid writing skills, a 680 will put you in the top 4% of the nation - that's not even a 700

Try taking ur own experience and add some fiction for enhancement of detail? Try a variety of things, like convert ur birthday into a one of a kind essay/day. :) lots of possibilities!!!!
