How long does the answer need to be?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
They gave me to do up to 5000 words or less
Expert:  asciandwildlife replied 7 months ago.

5000 words seems extremely long for this assignment. This could probably be answered in 300-500 words.

Expert:  asciandwildlife replied 7 months ago.

I can answer it for you in 300-500 words by Saturday evening, midnight EST. Would this work for you?

Hello! Here is your answer. Please rate my answer and a bonus is always appreciated. :)

1. The search method that worked best for me was searching via subject. I entered the subject term, “ minimum wage women”, and many relevant articles were returned in my search. I also really liked how the search include the journal title information and keywords as it helped give me an idea on which journals to really hone in on when looking for more information. I also found that the different options for sorting my results was helpful as it helped me rank my search results and decide which links I most wanted to explore. There were so many relevant links, which left me really impressed with Expanded Academic ASAP; it was better than google!

2. The search results of the Expanded Academic ASAP search engine were much more detail oriented and focused on what I was looking for versus a traditional search engine. In addition to Expanded Academic ASAP providing more specific search results, I also found that all of the sources provided were credible, whereas sometimes with a traditional search engine the results are not credible, or are questionable. I really likes the fact that I felt like I could trust Expanded Academic ASAP to guide me to quality information that my professor would approve of and that I could understand.

3. In my future studies at Penn Foster, I plan to use the Expanded Academic ASAP to assist me in my course work. If there is a specific term, person, or historical even I want to know more about, I would use this search engine to help me find the information I am looking for. I might also use this search engine to explore potential research paper topics and to see what available articles have been posted that are relevant to that research topic. It’s also so simple to use that I could show my friends and family how to use it, too.
