GRE Analytical Writing Course

The famous novelist Stephen King said this in his memoir about the craft of writing: "The scariest moment is always just before you start."

You may feel that way about the two essays you have to write as part of the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) on the GRE. How should you begin? What should you say? What are the readers looking for, and what do you need to do to get a high essay score on your GRE?

That's the purpose of this course -- to teach you everything you need to know to write effective "Analysis of an Issue" and "Analysis of an Argument" essay tasks on test day. There is a lot of advanced work you need to do before writing your first words, including coming up with thoughtful and compelling supporting examples, organizing your paragraphs logically, learning to write with fluidity, and overall knowing how to analyze a logical argument and pull supporting examples from numerous disparate sources. After taking this course, you'll know how to do all of that and more -- and you can prove Stephen King wrong because there won't be anything scary at all about diving in to your GRE essays on test day!

Here's what's included in this course:

  • 6 video lessons totaling 1.5 hours covering all aspects of the GRE Analytical Writing Assessment;
