I want to finalize one template for all type of essays. I got this lesson from Princeton Review book. Is this really workable? I hope E-rater doesn't punishes. Shall I go with a template in my mind while giving GMAT or not? Please give your opinion...

template is a good idea. it let's you start thinking about the question immediately without wasting time on how you want to structure the essay. the e-rater is electronic, meaning it's going to look for transition words, paragraphs, and essay structure. a template will let you do that effectively. i used a template and got a 6 on my AWA so i'd recommend it.

I never really studied for AWA. I scored 5 on GMAT for this section.

I tried to create a bubble map of all my ideas in the first 10 minutes. All I did was to think about evidence/ideas that supports the claims or ideas in the passage and also evidence/ideas that would dispute the claim/idea.

I quickly created a bubble map with information I generated above and then started writing my essays.

Princeton is the best source for AWA

I got 6.0 on AWA and I am non-native english speaker

just make sure that u build your own template, do not use their sample as is

Look at the thread in my signature. My guide blends the best of all that are out there :-D
I took the GMAT three times and scored 6.0 all three times. And this was when that percentile was still 89%.
