Product Description

Note: For the most up-to-date content, buy the print edition, which now includes perfect-scoring essays from students. The Kindle edition does not have some of these revisions yet.

This book is the only guide that gives you a proven battle-tested essay template used by a perfect scorer on the New SAT. As a teacher, I took the New SAT myself and got a 1600 to bring you these insights. This isn't just the 5-paragraph stuff that you read in every other book---I'll tell you exactly what persuasive elements to look for and how to analyze them. My high-scoring essay from the May 2016 exam is included. I share everything: what I did right as well as the subtle things I initially missed.

Here's what you'll learn inside:

  • How the SAT Essay is Graded
  • The 7 Things Every Perfect Essay Must Have
  • All the Rhetorical and Persuasive Elements You Need to Know
  • The Essay Template You Can Use to Analyze Any Prompt
  • The Narrate-Explain Framework
  • How to Quote
  • Eight Fatal Mistakes Students Make on the Essay
  • Sample Essays to Official Prompts
  • Real Student Essays that got a Perfect Score
