The SAT Writing/Language Exam
As students face the SAT Writing/Language exam, they demonstrate mastery of standard language conventions and writing skills used to best express ideas by improving the language in provided passages.
Language conventions evaluated could include punctuation, syntax, parts of speech, word choice, and other elements that could use improvement, and the measurement of expression relates to word choice, organization, and support for ideas.
As you encounter the question portion of the passage, you should answer each as you go. They’ll be in multiple choice format. It’s really not necessary to read the entire passage all the way through at the beginning, and doing so takes up valuable time you could use to focus on difficult portions instead.
When finished with the language portion, double back and go through the questions again. With English, sentences that sound correct could very well be incorrect given standard conventions. Frequent reading and proofing can be quite helpful when training the eye to spot commonly overlooked errors like pronoun/antecedent disagreement or modifier mistakes.
