Just attack whatever you think should be killed first, usually tank attacks the same thing.
You dont need to wait for anything. As a hunter you got an ability called Misdirection
For easy orientation around targets (what is tanked, whats attacking you and whats cced) you may want to use tidy plates/threat plates addon (and nameplates on).
*) here is my all in one focus/md macro:
Rclick will turn off growl on your current pet and put your current target on focus.
Lclick (or keybind press) will attempt to misdirect the focus target.
With a focus you can make an assist macro:
Or any skill you usually start with like
/use serpent sting
The problem with these is that tank will often switch targets in order to gain aggro on all of them, if there is a mob that should definately die first it should be marked with skull (raid marks). You can either keybind those (prefered) in keybinding menu (i got mine set at f5-f12) or rclick the mob and chose marks. Ideally its a tank's task to do so.
Should you pull aggro anyway you got another excelent ability Feign Death
PS: You should avoid using tab as ranged dps (hunter especially) as it tends to target everything around you not necesarily closest thing and you may find yourself pulling some more stuff due to nature of autoshot/cobra shot.
