Need help preparing for the SAT essay!

<p>I've began practicing being able to write an essay in twenty five minutes and have realized there are very few things I have knowledge of that I can use as relevant examples for any of the practice prompts I've looked up. What are some good examples to have prepared, both historical and (especially) pertaining to present day?</p>

<p>use the search function on this forum and look up "how to write a 12 essay in 10 days."</p>

<p>Good, versatile examples:</p>

<p>Stephen Hawking
Japanese Internment during WWII
Julius Caesar (by Shakespeare, or the historical figure himself)
Lord of the Flies
Fahrenheit 451</p>

<p>Avoid Gandhi and MLK. They are overused.</p>
