In the process of doing exegesis, many potential resources can be helpful. Is it on-topic for me to make a specific question like:
What are your top (n) commentaries for studying such-and-such a book? What do you like about each?
What are the merits/problems with Karl Barth's commentary on Romans? What is his general position the book? What are specific passages that he deals with well/poorly?
Obviously a question like
i want to study 1 sam. plz tell me were to start thx
is not so helpful. And the question should specifically ask about the exegetical features of the resource. For example, obviously
Is there any reason for someone who is not neo-orthodox should read Barth's commentary on Romans?
is not appropriate for Hermeneutics.SE. But if a question relating to exegetical or hermeneutical tools is specific enough, is it on topic? If not, would it be on topic at Christianity.SE?
