An improved form of static scaling for the nonlinear susceptibility, NL==0-(M/H), is given in which the argument of the scaling function is linear in t, i.e., NLH2/G(t/H2/) with =+. This allows for a linear instead of the usual logarithmic-scaling plot and a closer examination of the scaling fit relative to experimental error. Application is made to several spin glasses including Cd0.6Mn0.4Te. Significantly lower Tc and larger are found compared to previous analyses.
