Can you tell how the other devices are persuasive? I mean the "How piece" that is at the end of the paragraph. I need the template that I can use in every essay. You have explained about the three but please tell me what I can write in the last sentence in case of other persuasive devices. Well I could have bought the book but I have my SAT after 2 days.
Aaki (2 months ago)
For the hook sentence in first paragraph you said to write catchy lines. I was wondering if that line should be from the paragraph itself or some obvious quotes or lines from outside. It's said that everything should be from the passage and i was confused. I have sat in a week so please reply me soon enough.
Test Prep Spot (2 months ago)
You are very welcome.
Aaki (2 months ago)
+Test Prep Spot thank you so much
Test Prep Spot (2 months ago)
Hi Aaki and thanks for your question. You know, I don't remember saying that you needed to write a catchy hook. I know I included one in my example, but the intro would have been fine without it. The main point of the intro is to identify the author, passage title, and claim that the author makes. Also, you must include your thesis statement, which is the 3 persuasive devices you identified that you will analyze. Honestly, if you can craft a hook that leads the intro, then great. If not, I wouldn't be concerned. If you need some examples, check out the published and scored example essays on the College Board website. Most of the higher scoring essays keep their intro to 2-3 sentences. Very few use a hook. The readers of your essay know that you only have 50 minutes to complete the task, so don't stress out too much about the hook. Focus more on your analysis. Hope that helps.

Hi Tech Edison - thanks for the update. My fingers are crossed for you and your scores. :)

Update 1: took the SAT with essay.. I felt super defeated last night when I tried to write an essay (for the first time was my mistake) and just froze completely. Come today, I think I did well enough to get an OK score... Next update when I get my scores. I believe this video series helped with producing an essay that will be OK.

Did you follow this? How did you do?
abedelaziz hilal (1 year ago)
hi, seems that the introduction too small? or this is enough for sat essay?
Test Prep Spot (1 year ago)
Hi Abedelaziz. You are correct that the introduction is short. You've got to think about it this way...the intro is a necessary part of the essay writing process, but it's not the "core" of the essay. You (and the essay readers) know that you only have 50 minutes to read, analyze, and write. The intro serves to tell your reader where you're going and show that you can organize and plan an essay. That's it. Your 3 body paragraphs show your analytical & writing skills. That's where you should concentrate the most effort, time, and word count. Hope that helps.
