  • Hi  ! Thanks for taking the time to watch. I was fortunate to major in English, so I had many years to sharpen the old 5-paragraph essay. I actually reached out to my MW FB group a few weeks ago to glean a few more recommendations for students who want to improve their writing. They passed along some great ideas. There is a book that is called Writing Successful Essays by the Open University Press. I saw some used copies online. A couple MWs actually refer students to The Economist for its tight use of language and structure. I love that. I recall an English professor my freshman year in college had us dissect The New Yorker and The Atlantic Monthly for its rhetorical devices. Another great recommendation is Tim Wildman's WineTutor.tv website -- there is a section with four films on essay writing techniques for the MW exam. Just head to Exam Techniques > Theory. Finally, once you are a student, you have access to even more study resources through the Institute. Best of luck to you! ;)
