Hello everybody,

I am taking the GMAT examination on 28/12. I haven't practicted the AWA section at all, and I am thinking of spending just a couple of hours to skim through chineseburned guide. Is AWA important for Business Schools? A low AWA score is going to weaken my application? (my english is rather weak - my TOEFL score is 106)

Thanks in advance.

The AWA isn't going to make or break your MBA application unless you get below 4.0 on AWA which is hard to do.

That said - it takes extra stamina to write both essay prompts and then go right into the Quant section. I think it's worth doing practice GMATs with an AWA at the beginning because it requires more concentration and effort that simply starting with Quant. I'd review the various AWA guides, but also practice writing the AWA, especially if you have any uncertainty writing in English.

Thanks for the reply. I am going to read the guides and then memorize some standard expressions.
