Book Title: Manhattan Review GMAT Analytical Writing Guide [6th Edition]: Answers to Real AWA Topics
Publisher: Manhattan Review
Author: Joern Meissner
The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA)
section is a challenge for many takers of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). An added challenge is the lack of preparation material available, especially with regard to detailed explanations of certain categories of the assessment 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: the only book on the market that discusses in detail all available argument types appearing on the test in 2016. This book contains more than 30 questions with these types. Another distinctive feature is that each question is explained 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 incorrect answers are wrong. The book then presents solutions to 40 real argument topics, but not just one solution. Four solutions (scored 6/5/3/2), along with 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 possible preparation you can get for the AWA section on the GMAT! About the Series: The Turbocharge Your GMAT
