If the total score is 2400, with each part worth 800, how much does the essay weigh? Do we write the essay right after we finish the multiple choice questions?

The essay is always the first part of the SAT exams.  There's tons of practice ones just online to help you prepare.  Since the writing portion is 800 points out of 2400, it's worth 33% of your score.  (800/2400=.33)  Best of luck to you! :)

I'm still confused. So the math, reading, and writing are worth up to 800 points each. That is already 2400 points. How is the essay added to the score?

The essay is actually apart of the writing section, included into the 800 points.  The writing section is a combination of the essay and multiple choice questions.  The actual essay itself is roughly 200 points of the 800 points for the writing section.
