Can you use a semicolon?

The Writing and Language section is by far the easiest SAT section to improve on, because nearly half of the questions follow very simple grammatical rules that students were either never taught or have forgotten since their eighth grade English class.

Do you remember how to use a semicolon?
A colon?
A dash?
The eight ways to use a comma?

Once you know how to use these types of punctuation, you can easily gain 50 points on this section and therefore 50 points on your overall score. We provide students with an SAT guide that complements our tutoring and guides them step-by-step toward mastery of all the essential skills on the Writing and Language test. You can see a sample linked here.
