Speaking of the essay section. The mba.com website has a pdf file you can download of 2001-2002 essays. Does anyone know if this is the most current list? Is the list only published after the questions are retired? I was hoping to see some 2003 questions.

1. The CD takes quite a while to arrive. I think it was like 2 weeks after I registered. But you can download the same software from mba.com after you confirm your registration.

2. For practicing essays, I would recommend the following:
* Read through the essay section in either Kaplan or PP. They do a pretty good job in those books with explaining the importance of writing a conventional, standard essay that conforms to the expectations of ETS.
* For each type of essay, create for yourself a generic outline that you can use to answer any question. This is very easy to do after you understand what is expected of each essay.
* Begin to browse through the list of possible essay topics (available at mba.com or in the back of OG) and think of how you would answer the questions. Pick random ones that seem straightforward, then progress to more difficult ones. Try to think in "threes" -- that is, for each essay you should concentrate on discussing three different things. For the Analysis of an Issue essay, have 3 examples. For the Analysis of an Argument essay, have 3 points that you believe are not adequately expressed and attack them. 3 is enough to show that you have carefully thought through the issues, and is definitely do-able in 30 minutes.
* When you actually start writing, OUTLINE first. Take about 6-8 minutes to outline your answer to the question on paper, then start writing. I'd recommend 2-3 minutes on an opening, 4-5 minutes per body paragraph, 2-3 minutes on a conclusion, and the remaining time to re-read and fix any grammar or stylistic errors you see.
* My advice would just be to do essays every time you practice a test, no more or less often. Thus, assuming you take 5-7 practice tests, you will write a total of 10-14 essays, which is definitely enough. As with the test, timing is probably the most difficult factor, so do some additional essay practice if you feel timing is a problem.
* Remember that the essays come first, so your mind will be really sharp at this point -- take advantage of that! If you feel great about your essays, you can head into the math section feeling very confident, which will obviously help with the rest of the test.

Let me know if you would like to talk more about essays.

The questions in the 10th edition of OG are good at least until the end of 2003.
