The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) is rarely a student's top priority when preparing for the GMAT, but it isn't something you should ignore, either.

For the most part, the specific topics the GMAT gives you do not themselves require preparation. You should spend time thinking about how best to structure AWA essays and how to manage your time (30 minutes per essay), but not so much focusing on the particular prompts the test might give you.

That said, you can see every single essay topic that you might face on test day:

I don't know how much of an advantage it would be to spend the time to go through all 50+ pages of essay topics, but if nothing else, it gives you realistic practice prompts for any essays you might write before sitting for the exam. If you're looking for more information on the AWA section, I wrote an overview that you can find here.
