I got a 5.5....

    I can't believe I got a 5.5!! I only practised writing the essay the day before the exam. While the Issue topic was essay, I had a hard time understanding the Argument topic. I didn't even have 5 paragraphs for Argument - only 4. I thought I would be getting a 3 or 4, I mean I did really bad on the main GMAT (540, taking it again next month)

    I guess a good score makes me temporarily happy before I go back to studying for hell that is GMAT Wink Please excuse me if getting 5.5+ is the norm now.. I haven't checked up on other people's scores!!!

    Nice! (And you don't have to have 5 paragraphs. I never write more than 4 for either essay and I score 6's.)

    Hey Maxim, nice score. Congratulations.

    I would appreciate if you can post a summary of your approach and strategies for AWA. It would benefit many folks.
