Official List of AWA Topics for GMAT

    Attached is the official list of AWA topics that are used for the actual GMAT (this list is also available at MBA.com). Everyone should download and examine this document prior to taking the GMAT. Just to reiterate, all GMAT essay topics come exclusively from this list.

    A suggestion for prep: do about a dozen timed practice essays during your GMAT prep, using topics from this list. If you have time, go through the list and try to make a mental outline in your head about how you would answer each essay topic. If you can do these two things, you'll be in great shape!

    Hello, Interesting resources, thank you, I am going to start practice them, however these AWA topics date from 2006, so I was wondering if there is not a more recent version.
