"Issue" questions on AWA discontinued??

    Hoping some of you GMAT experts may be able to help!

    From reading online, I have seen various posts which mention "issue" AWA questions and "argument" AWA questions. However, in the OG2017, not a single example is given of an "issue" question, and there is no mention of it in the book either. I also noticed that most of the posts who mention these questions are pretty dated.

    So my question is: has GMAT stopped asking the "issue" questions in favour of the argument questions?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Prior to 2011, there were two essay types in the AWA section: an issue essay and an argument essay.

    In 2011, the test-makers eliminated the issue essay and replaced it with the Integrated Reasoning section.
    So, if you see a reference to the issue essay, that resource has not been properly updated.

    Cheers,
    Brent
