    HOW! How do you write a comparative essay for English?
    I’m taking ELAT in two days and I’ve never had to do a comparative essay before in my courses.

    Does anyone have any recommendations/advice/help?

    A comparative essay is one that requires you to compare between 2 or more data. So any good comparative essay would take this formula. X being one subject of discourse, Y being another.

    X

    while

    Y.

    Z would now be a conclusion containing your comments. Endeavor to make X and Y as intriguing and differentiating as possible.
