Any particular number-of-words range which one should strive for? If yes, is it the same for Argument and Issue essays? Any tips on the "right" size of the AWA essays?

Aim for 5 paragraphs. This should include an introduction, three main body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Mohater has already provided you with this link in your other thread. Please review it.

Introduction

Point 1

Point 2

Point 3

Conclusion.

Do not write a novel but make sure your points are concise. Use the OG AWA examples as a guide.

I was reading this Peterson Arco - It has suggested ~330 word for Argument and ~ for issue ~ 350. But more important things are content and its organization. As mentioned in previous replies, ideally your response should be approx 4- 5 paragraphs and each pargrapgh 3-5 lines.

Below links will be helpful in preparing for AWA.
