I just wanted to know if an average score or maybe even below average in AWA & IR is good enough if i'm getting around the same quant&verbal score that my b-school expects me to. Also, please suggest some books/forums which will help me with AWA & IR. Don't want to spend lots of time on it. thanks.

Hi Shbm,

You ask a rather broad question - and the answer will depend on the strength of your OVERALL Profile, the Schools that plan to apply to and when you plan to apply. The idea that you would submit an application that was not as strong as you could make it seems problematic. If an Admissions Officer thinks that you're not trying very hard (especially on something as important as the GMAT), then you might not be a good person to invite to that School (since you will almost certainly have to do a LOT of tough work to earn your MBA).

This is essentially an Admissions question though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

Hi Shbm,

You'll find plenty of IR and Essay resources in the forums at GMATClub. When it comes to the GMAT, I'm not a proponent of book-heavy study (since that type of study just doesn't properly prepare you for the rigors of testing on a computer), so I don't have any book-based suggestions for how you could study for those two sections.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
