How can I prepare myself to write the SAT essay?

QUESTION
How can I prepare myself to write the SAT essay?
I’m usually pretty good at writing essays for school, but that’s because I get a long amount of time to write it (days, even weeks), and it’s usually a pretty specific topic so it’s easy to narrow down on ideas and focus your thoughts on something very concrete. On the SAT essay, all the odds seem to be against me – less than 30 minutes to plan and write it and a very general topic. This really annoys me because it’s almost impossible for me to focus my thoughts on very specific examples given the very general and vague topics that don’t usually apply to my life in any way whatsoever. I need a way to be able to generate something, anything (no not anything, good material) given a general topic. What are some tips you can give me to help me prepare to write it?

One tip I’ve seen at a certain website is to find out as much as you can about one general topic, then manipulate it to fit the SAT question you’ll be asked since it will be general as well. For example, learn a lot about American History, then for the essay think about specific moments in American history that apply to the question. This tip although it sounds very sensible, actually isn’t too helpful for me because even when I know about a general topic, I can hardly think of any specific examples in the short amount of time to plan and write about it. Please help me out! What did you do to prepare for the SAT essay?

ANSWER
ok, this is probably the most feared type of questions in the SAT and the most easiest. If you want to get a good answer you should probably ask someone of your grade level , like me. that is why i am here. probably the best way to prepare for the SAT essay is by either reading alot or by choosing english 3 ap, where you do allot of essays. Also practice writing and using smart words. Make sure you memorize the words because i heard the vocab section is hard. Also buy the sat prep books they actually help you. If you want to get into a good college make sure you write neet in the SAT and skillfully. teachers always like good handwriting
