Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

I never know where to put commas; I either put them in way too many or none at all. What are some basic rules for commas?

Answer:

Generally, you can think of it this way: any time you have a phrase that can stand on its own, there should be a comma somewhere. A lot of punctuation is sadly just learning rules and recognizing what it is that you are writing.

Question:

How do factor quadratic equations quickly?

Answer:

Knowledge of multiplication facts is super important for factoring. Most of the time it can be trial and error until your mind picks up on patterns. I do know a specific trick or two to make it easier though.

Question:

What if I'm a slow reader, and I find it difficult to read all the passages and answer all the questions within the tie limit?

Answer:

My best advice is to keep an eye on the clock and keep a solid pace. Taking multiple practice tests is the best way to get a feel for it. You want to read the passages, but bottom line, you'll need to at least read the sentence surrounding the question to figure out the correct answer.
