I would recommend preparing by writing some practice essays. I did not prepare at all because I'm a writer by profession so I thought I'd ace this part... It was a mistake. I did not do as well in AWA as I could have. By doing practice essays you'll become more proficient in organizing your thoughts within the time limit of the test. You can post your essays for feedback from other posters.

On the GRE website there is a full list of topics for the analysis of issue and argument tasks.

I sense that one of the principles here is "God help those who help themselves."

The GRE website they are talking about (in case you don't know):ets.org/gre

go to "practice for a GRE test"--then "general test"--then, sample Qs tab

This will provide a whole wealth of information that will answer a lot of questions.

Well, actually, there's an easier way to type the URL, just input gre.org and then Enter.:p

For the argument section, Prof. Weston's book (http://www.amazon.com/Rulebook-Arguments-Anthony-Weston/dp/0872209547/ref=ed_oe_p) is a good reference. For the issue section, I would recommend a wide range of reading. A good place to start is Arts & Letters Daily - ideas, criticism, debate (http://www.aldaily.com)

To myshkin --- The website you recommend seems very good. Thanks for sharing. I don't know how it sounds if someone focuses on the topics in the pool and searches for materials.

Hey friends,

Can you suggest where can I practice the writing for the issue prompt? I noticed that most of the essays written by any member remain untouched or otherwise sidelooked or like that.

Waiting for your quick response.
