There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Hypothesis on the matter would be that with a lower AWA can be entirely offset by the quality of your essays - with a 4.0 easily (the only way this wouldn't work is if you got say a 2.0, then you wrote stellar essays - then people think someelse wrote them).
Having said that, I don't think a 4.0 is anything to worry about too much. Just put the work in.
There are several threads on essay books on here - Montauk and Bodine are the two preferred texts by people on here.
From my research on the matter... When AdComs see your marvelous essays and compare it with poor English/AWA score - they see a disconnect and can assume you hired someone to (help) write it. Said that: you have a really good score in English and a 4 on AWA is probably not bad (percentile?) - so I wouldn't worry about it.
