One of the first tips is to avoid using slang or informal language in your SAT essays. Some of the most common examples of informal language that's super-easy to correct:
- If you mean child, say child. Don't say kid. A kid is a young goat or sheep. Seriously. Similarly, don't say kids unless you mean young goats; instead, say children.
- Don't say mom; say mother. Don't say dad; say father. Don't say grandma and grandpa; say grandmother and grandfather instead. You get the idea.
That's it for now. In the future, we'll be posting more tips like this. If you'd like more information and test-taking tips, information, pointers, and the like, please like the TestMagic Facebook page or sign up for the TestMagic Word of the Day.
