A big part of the Analysis score for the SAT essay is not just identifying the devices the author uses to build her argument, but explaining the effect that the use of these devices has on the reader.

Two different people will read and score your essay. Each scorer awards 1–4 points for each dimension: reading, analysis, and writing. The two scores for each dimension are added. You’ll receive three scores for the SAT Essay-one for each dimension-ranging from 2–8 points. There is no composite SAT Essay score (the three scores are not added together) and there are no percentiles. We train every scorer to hold every student to the same standards, the ones shown on this page.

I loved this book when I first discovered it because it had specific strategies that really worked for the SAT. But unfortunately the College Board diligently reads all of these guides and constantly changes its tests to make sure that the tricks no longer work. I have always preferred a more flexible strategy than the extensive memorization promoted by this book, but now a flexible strategy is imperative. The College Board has started to deviate from these standard essay themes and to add twists to them so that the strategies in this book can no longer be applied as easily.

That said, these strategies will still be useful if you use them as a guide to what could show up and make sure that you are ready for prompts that deviate significantly from what is promised by this guide. You can still use the outlines in the back to put together details from a selection of excellent books, historical examples and personal experiences. And even writing out how they apply to the standard themes can be very helpful. I would just spend less time on these themes and more time trying to use your selections with the essay prompts given on the most recent SAT's. These are available on the College Board website.

So the bottom line is that this is still a good guide with some helpful strategies, but it should be used with the knowledge that the essay prompts now vary more than this book suggests.

The book is easy to read/understand, and provides a concise, to the point strategy on how to succeed on the SAT essay. The specific tips that are given in the book are not only applicable to the SAT, but to English class in my school as well. For all the skills that are learned throughout the process of studying for the SAT, essay writing is the one that is most able to carry over into normal school work. Writing an entire essay in 25 minutes seems daunting at first, but the book shows that it is possible to apply universal examples to all the essay topics that the SAT can throw at you. The book fully prepares you for all aspects of the essay.

This book is an SAT essay bible, it is loaded with various examples on a number of prompts and the ten secrets are fabulous. My SAT essay score improved by 2 points and this book has taught me how to write an essay the way Collegeboard wants it. The samples range from personal to historical and fictional ones, and I promise they are brilliant in content and accurately scored.

This is a must buy for any student struggling with writing an SAT essay. You could look inside the book first if you are dubious whether to make a purchase or not.

Hope this helps!

This book was very easy to use, and helped me fully prepare for the SAT essay. It easily laid out the structure for all possible essay formats, and even helped me to predict the essay topic before the day of the test. I would highly reccomend this book, it is very helpful and will ensure you do your best on the essay!

My son used this book before he took the SAT for the second time. His first Writing score was a 640. His score came in yesterday from test 2........an 800!! I really recommend this book.

Really, I am a tutor, and I purchased this essay book as a supplement for my students. This book is by far the worse one I have used.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm an SAT prep tutor and textbook author myself, with other books on the SAT essay (I will not name them)

So of course I size up the competition.

Some books are really great. I learn from those tutors and incorporate any simple, effective, flexible methods I can find.

This is NOT one of those books. Got it on loan from one of my students.

This book takes about 10x too long to explain itself, the method has too many steps and things to remember, and I doubt its flexibility with the current changes in the SAT essay.

MORE IMPORTANTLY - the 5-star reviews are faked. I always examine this in my competitor's reviews. They have been left by NON-VERIFIED PURCHASERS who haven't reviewed ANY other products. Look at the names of the reviewers as well. Give me a break. I've never seen a clearer example of make-believe, sales-boosting fake Amazon reviews.

I highly recommend AGAINST this book. It is less effective than other available options and, speaking as someone with a 2400 on the SAT and 4 years teaching experience, this is NOT a good way to prepare for the test.

(May I say again - blatantly dishonest advertising...)
I've never been great at school, and English was always my worst subject. I don't think I've gotten anything above a B since 2nd grade. I also suck at writing. My mom bought this book for me after the first time I took the SATs because I didn't do well and a family friend had recommended this book. I didn't start looking at it until after the second time I took the SATs and the tutor I was using hadn't helped me increase my scores at all. This is book is so accessible and not condescending AT ALL! It made me feel like a real person was telling me these things and it was all sssoooo simple. I really liked how everything was broken down into sections that were easy for me to understand and nothing was thrown at me all at once. Also, the book was great with highlighting, bolding and separating the most important information so the night before my last SAT I could flip through and be reminded of everything. Not only did it increase my SAT scores, it helped raise my English grade a HUGE amount! No joke, I credit this book for getting me into the college of my dreams and I know I will use this book in college too. GREAT BOOK! EASY TO UNDERSTAND! BEST ESSAY BOOK EVER, EVER! Should be required reading!
