Hi All,

Thanks for reading my post.

I am taking the exam in a few days and I haven't had the time to prepare for IR and AWA. I have been working on weaknesses in verbal and quant, and I have dedicated no time to IR and AWA.

I am wondering if any one has any resources that I can utilize to review IR and AWA over the course of 4-5 hours?

Thanks in advance

Hopefully you've already taken the test and done well!

For anyone else worried about IR, keep in mind: it's less important that your Quant + Verbal 200-800 score. (And the AWA is wayyyy less important!)

The IR section does not test content that you haven't seen elsewhere on the Quant or Verbal - only the question types will look different. All of the studying you've done elsewhere will be relevant to IR, too.

Here are some more resources for anyone curious:
