1. 谚语类SSAT写作要求为：针对话题表明态度(agree or disagree);然后采用1-2个具体的例子支持观点，例子来源于考生自己的生活经验、他人的生活经验、时事、历史以及文学谚语题是这三种题型当中难度最大的一个。这种题难就难在学生对于谚语的理解。很多同学看到谚语题都不知道从何下手，因为一些同学根本就不明白这句谚语的意思是什么。另外，由于语言和文化上的差异，很多中国学生对于英语的谚语总是理解得不是非常到位，这就需要我们要进行大量的积累。
2. 陈述类SSAT写作要求为：针对话题表明态度(agree or disagree)；然后采用1-2个具体的例子支持观点，例子来源于考生自己的生活经验、他人的生活经验、时事、历史以及文学陈述题是最简单的一种题型，这与我们中国学生在平时的课堂上练习的写作题非常类似。所以如果我们的学生在考试的时候遇到了陈述题，那对考生真的是一件幸事。
“Haste makes waste” is an old English idiom which tells us that if you do things too quickly or too carelessly, you are likely to make more mistakes and end up with bad result. It has been true throughout the history and is absolutely true in the world today. I want to sustain my opinion throughout the following two examples.
One of the examples that I want to illustrate is the problem-causing construction of the stadium in my neighborhood which was constructed in order to hold the National Sports Game ten years ago. I learned from my mother that the stadium was built only for half a year in a great hurry and haste. At first, all of the people in our neighborhood were supremely amazed at the astonishing rapid rate and efficiency at building such a brand-new stadium with the most advanced technology in our nation. But a good time never lasted long, 2 months later, portion of the roof collapsed due to the heavy storm and rain. This leaded to a series of continuing problem such as a big strike of labors and the shortage of money in mending and rebuilding the “new” stadium. Until 1 year later, the stadium which had been previously considered as the first-class stadium over the country was reopened to public, unfortunately 8 months after the hold of the Nation Sport Game.
The failure of my test may also be regarded as a very persuasive example of “Haste makes waste”. Once I had a hard time preparing for an extremely complicated but important final-exam in my school. The fact is that I didn’t manage my schedule well and had to go over all the notes and papers in at most 6 hours, in other words, I didn’t have time to rest, to sleep, to have meals but just to keep working. This may seem to be an efficient method to accomplish so much work at the same time. But it turned out to be a terrible or even worse time for me. My head kept falling down and I felt drowsy and couldn’t help falling asleep. Actually I only studied for 3 hours in all, only half of the efficiency that I planned to reach. There couldn’t be an even worse time for me and I learned a hard but meaningful lesson from it.
In sum, nothing good can be done unless you do it with great clam and carefulness, if not, it will probably result in an even more costly and worthless consequence. Just as the example: most of the spelling mistakes are caused because people spell the words too quickly and carelessly without checking them again. Thus, what we should do now is try to be more careful and responsible of what we’re going to do and avoid those unnecessary mistakes.
