Picky writer

Post Mon Jul 30, 2007 5:29 pm
hi guys,

I am really having trouble with writing under stressful time.

I am a picky writer. It takes me only 3- 4 minutes to write an outline. But it takes me at least 10 minutes to write one paragraph. My only problem is I like to reread every sentence I wrote and rewrite it right after it.

What should I do? I won't be able to finish it within 30 minutes. Are there other advices? My only target for AWA is 4. I will be very happy with a grade above 4.

The good news is that you don't have to be a great or thorough writer to do well on the AWAs--just structure your essays well and have an okay argument and you'll be fine.

Have you had a chance to check out the GMAT Resource Wiki, http://www.beatthegmat.com/wiki/ ? There are some great AWA resources there.

Best of luck! Do some practice a few weeks prior to your test, work on your timing, and you'll be just fine.
