good guidebooks for essay writing

<p>hi guys!
I am an international student from China and I am right now worrying about my college application essays. So, basically, I have finished all my standardized tests, all quite satisfactory, so the only thing left to be done is to write the ESSAY!
As an international student, my writing is not that good, although I got 11 in the SAT essay section. Many of my expressions are not so native and my essays often suffer from redundancy.
So, do you guys have some books to recommend me to read, like a textbook for creative writing, such that I may get some progress in my essay writing?
Thanks a lot!</p>
