Thanks shaheed.
I have already sorted out the issue and argument essays. This will help you out in sorting all the essays.
The left column denotes the #no. as in ets pool of essays, and the right column denotes the essay no. given in the arco book.

Hi All,

I have uploaded GRE Issues List from ETS here (http://gre-preparation.info/?p=11) and also Arco book here (http://gre-preparation.info/?p=22)

Hi coolsamurai

I am desperately looking for the numbered testmagic-ets list that you refer to here, when you compare ARCO's essays with the ones on this obvoisly hard-to-get list.

It is strange: Everybody is referring to this list when they send their essays in for grading (essay # 12, argument # 56 etc...), but nobody seem sto have this list available.

I checked with the current ETS list on their webpage, but they must have changed the order of the issues, because if you number them, you end up with different numbers for the issues.

Once again: this (older) list must exist, since everybody is referring to it, but where is it? Could you please help me and send it to me (boehm@inet2000.com)?

Thanks so much.

N.

Please help?

I have the ARCOS book GMAT-CAT Answers To The Real Essay Questions ISBN: 0-02-863735-6.

Pages 159 thru 275 gives useful 115 useful examples of Analysis-of-an-Argument question answers BUT DOES NOT GIVE THE QUESTIONS L ?!?

Page 2 instructs to download the 115 questions from the URL: www.west.net/~stewart/gmat (http://www.west.net/~stewart/gmat) and to “click through to the “Free Downloads” page.
Unfortunately there is NOT a “Free Downloads” page on The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) (http://www.west.net/~stewart/gmat/) L ?!?

Page 275 “How To Obtain the Official AWA Questions” instructs to go to page www.west.net/~stewart/gmat/awa_down.htm (http://www.west.net/~stewart/gmat/awa_down.htm)
Unfortunately http://www.west.net/~stewart/gmat/awa_down.htm reports “File Not Found” L ?!?

Please can you kindly e-mail here (or inform the correct link from which to download) the QUESTIONS for the 115 useful answers to the Analysis-of-an-Argument questions given on Pages 159 thru 275 of GMAT-CAT Answers To The Real Essay Questions ISBN: 0-02-863735-6 ?

The current list of official Analysis-of-an-Argument questions from the GMAT site does not have numbers so it is impossible to match them to the ARCOS essays.
