I have completely ignored the AWA section of the GMAT in my prep as well as when I give practice CATs. Any suggestions on how to ace this section in the actual GMAT exam. I've been told its good practice to give atleast 1 or 2 CATs with the AWA. But are there any good books with sample essays etc? Any other resources?

The Official Guide has sample essays near the back of the book.

Also in the OG, there's a complete list of all the topics in the question pool. It's a waste of time to go through them all very carefully,but you can get a very good idea of what you're up against.

I would strongly recommend writing an essay or two under the 30-minute time limit just for practice.

I wrote more about the AWA here:

There's a section called "How to Prepare" near the bottom of the article.

Thanks. I read your post. So 250 words essay is not too short? What's the ideal length?

What practice materials are you using? Most of them should cover the AWA and provide templates and topics to practice with. I have Cracking the GMAT and it's got a really great chapter on the AWA, with key transitional words to use, a template, and tips.
