Morning session, answer format

When they ask us to calculate using a certain formula and show our work, do we have to use the same METHOD used in the samples? explain about the formula and its “ingredients” in general before we actually calculate the numbers?..

They do a lot of explanation in the solutions for sample exams when the question is just, calculate. Not that I mind explaining, but id like to know if we should answer the same way used.

I would just write the general formula and keep moving. Check out some of the Schweser solutions. They are very concise and would be awarded full points (so they say). Obviously you’ll probably write a little more, but not too much more.
