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.

Thanks.

    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:

    Intro:

    -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

    Body 1:

    -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

    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.

    Body 3:

    -Same steps as body 2

    Conclusion:

    -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 Luck

    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!!!!
