如官方指南第二版中，第四套题目中的ESSAY： ASSIGNMENT： Do changes that make our lives easier not necessarily make them better?
一个满分考生的开篇段是： Throughout time mankind has strived to make his life easier. Whether it be through technology, science, or theories of social interaction every generation has made one contribution. From the idea of crop rotation to the cellular telephone mankind has advanced. It can be argued however, that not all of these advancements were beneficial. Many times people are accused of “taking the easy way out”, something that is looked down upon in today’s society.
结尾段是： While technology and science have made man’s life easier, they have not made it better. Man has become less productive and less devoted, partly, as a result of this newfound ease of life. Therefore, what makes our lives easier does not necessarily make them better.
典型的三段式，开篇很清晰的给出了观点“It can be argued however, that not all of these advancements were beneficial.”而结尾是“While technology and science have made man’s life easier, they have not made it better.”以及“Therefore, what makes our lives easier does not necessarily make them better.”其实都是对开篇观点的重新改写。这样做比较清晰，反复强调也可以更好的突出主题。
