    How accurate must sketches be?
    I tend to rush them, label everything, but they don't look as neat as sketches in the textbook.

    A good example is cubic function like x^3. I struggle to draw it and it seems like they're several roots past 0 or before.

    Well you can't really struggle to sketch y=x^3 as it's quite basic - there is only one root!

    Sketch appearances are fine as long as they give the feel for the graph, and all the important information is correctly labelled.
