SAT Essay Thesis

Dagol12Dagol12 Registered User Posts: 285 Junior Member
I've read various sources indicating that it is best to start the essay with your main thesis. However, I've also read and been told that it's best to start with a broad topic and finish the introduction with the main thesis statement? Which is best for the SAT essay?

Also, how long should the introduction be, I've heard various reports. My approach is/was:
Thesis. General statement that relates to prompt and reemphasizes my thesis. Examples to be used in the essay. Is this wrong? If so, How should I fix it.
