Hello,
Would like to know if there is really an order for AWA topics. Which is first?
Analysis of an issue is first and then the analysis of an argument? Or vice versa.
Is there an actual e-rater software somewhere that I could try out? Or simulations? Am trying to figure if there are any keywords that would add up for better score by e-rater and if yes, dont want to miss those words:)

Thanks,

Found the answer to my second part of my question @ Business School Application Guide Sample.pdf on this site. So that tells there is no such tool that simulates official GMAC e-rater for AWA section.
However I am still wondering if there is order in AWA, which one is first? -- Thanks.

Hey,

The two AWA sections can appear in either order when you take the GMAT.

Regarding software that will test and grade you on the AWA, GMAC offers GMAT Write, a web-based essay writing practice tool that uses real GMAT writing prompts along with instant feedback. You can see more information on GMAT Write here: http://www.mba.com/store/product-info.aspx?ProductID=17

Coincidentally, if you're a Manhattan GMAT course student, a free download of GMAT Write is included in your online resources.

I hope this helps!

Best,

I wouldnt focus too much on AWA if I were you. As long as your walk away from it with a reasonable score, you will be fine.

I didnt understand how relatively important AWA was when I first took the test, and I got very nervous during that section, which threw me off when quant came up next.

Then I found out it doesnt even impact your total score, and I was p. o.'d. I got a 5.5 on that section and did not even complete my first essay.

Thank you very much Matt. I will check the link for that software.

Hopalong: I think I am set for quant and verbal and 26t being my test, wanted to get some things on AWA. I know it could be easy for some. But I might need practice and even a template. So working it all out.

Thanks all.
