  己准备必须多思考,拿了个题目想尽办法去分析,去了解如何写这个题。比如说考试抽到的这个题(这个题比较好写),具体题不记得了,我复述:It should be required that student so far major take courses in a different major in college。

  这个题思考的时候就可以从很多方面入手,比如:对major进行分类,文科类、科学类、纯理论类 (theoretical,math,physics等),他们肯定是不相同的。然后可以说不同的major对其他知识的需求,然后就是college对这类的限制(学到更广的知识,目的是什么,结果如何?),到了社会上如何。





  This argument concludes/recommends/argues that…


  To support this conclusion the writer cites…/points out that…


  However, this argument suffers from several critical flaws and is therefore unconvincing/ unpersuasive as it stands.
