The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) section is a challenge for many takers of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). An added challenge is the lack of preparation material available, especially with regard to a detailed strategy for the issue segment and thorough explanations of certain categories of the argument section such as finding the flaw, method of reasoning, and parallel reasoning. In response to our students’ requests, Manhattan Review has created what students most want: a book that covers in detail strategies for writing issue-based responses and argument-based responses. Another distinctive feature is that each argument is dissected in a three-tier structure – helping you understand the argument construction, teaching you to predict the qualifying answer beforehand, and explaining each option with an emphasis on why the correct answer is right and the wrong answers are unsuitable. The book then discusses solutions to 20 real issue-based and 20 real argument-based GRE topics. For a number of questions, four solutions (scored 6/5/3/2), along side their critiques, are provided so students learn why a good essay gets a high score and what is lacking in another. In short, this book represents the best imaginable preparation you’ll get for the AWA section on the GRE!
