The allotted time for short answer questions normally ranges from 8 to 10 minutes. c) longer essay questions that ask you to address a particular prompt or question.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
