conjunctions

Are there rules of thumb on when to use various conjunctions?For example how to differentiate between: 和,并且,也 and others Not sure if this is correct logic: My thinking at this point is that 并且 is equivalent to the ',and' situation in English when two sentences need to be connected. Whereas, 和 is used to connect two nouns or two verbs. 和 and 也 do not connect complete thoughts though. Thanks in advance!Joshua McDanielSee More
