Though the test itself is about math, the hardest part often becomes the word problems. A lot of the test is made up of paragraphs of information that can become cumbersome to read. One of the most important things is to practice these types of questions and become aware of tips and tricks that help solve such word problems. Over time, the useless words will just fly by and picking out the important information will become second nature.
What is the most essential part of writing a good essay?
Really, there are two big parts in writing a good essay. The first, and most important step, is to simply start writing. Often, the hardest part of writing is putting words on a page. THere are many tips and tricks that can be used to help the juices start flowing, but the most important part is to start. On the other hand, editing!

Who are the three classical theorists of sociology and how do their views on the subject differ?
Though there are many different views on sociology and sociological theory, the three classical theorists are often considered to be Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim, and Max Weber. Karl Marx is considered to be the "conflict theorist" as much of his study is based on two main principles: the owning of property and revolution. Durkheim, on the other hand, is considered to be a functionalist as his focus relies on what he calls to be social facts, or the ways in which society functions. Lastly, Weber is considered to be an intrepertatist as he takes a approach most similar to modern sociology and focuses on the watching and classifying of patterns in society.
