From the college admission experts, an essential guide on how to successfully conquer the many different kinds of essays found on common high schools standardized exams such as the ACT, APs, SSAT, TOEFL, and more.
Writing essays for standardized tests is different than writing essays for class or applications. The space you have to make your argument, the time you have to consider your approach, and the criteria that graders are using to asses your work—these all require a different writing approach.
The experts at The Princeton Review have analyzed popular high school standardized tests (including the SAT, ACT, APs, TOEFL, and more) and created an innovative guide that groups the essays found in these exams into common types, then breaks down the best ways to approach each one. The book begins with a “choose your own adventure” section that maps out which chapters a student should review depending on the test they’re prepping for, and each content chapter ends with “good” and “bad” essay examples. Content chapters cover:
General advice for all essays
Short answer and long essay approaches
How to analyze textual content; quantitative content; and graphical/visual content
Incorporating outside information and content
Making calculations within an essay (common in math and science AP tests)
Rhetorical analysis and synthesis
Argumentative and critical essays
…plus additional unique topics, such as letter/email writing (found in some foreign-language APs) and foreign-language essay approaches.
