Hello,

I took 5 practice exams but always skipped the essay part. I read your post an hour before my GMAT and scored a 6 on my AWA.

Many thanks.

Um I ran into some trouble getting to the test center, so things kinda went haywire, but somehow got a decent score. 50 points below my best practice score, but that's fine!

Not sure if I'll retake.

Good luck everyone!

Great post! My non native speaker condition made me think I was unable to get a high score, but from your experience and by reading your guide I now feel capable of it, so thanks!

Thanks a lot this is probably the most concise and helpful guide I have read for writing AWA....I have been trying to read up on what is expected for a long time and even spoke to some of my friends who gave their GRE. No one was able to put it quite like you did.
