Re: Nationals Event Discussion

Unfortunately, the same was not true about the Herpetology test. Although I was fortunate to get the result I wanted, it's still important to address the persistent issues with this event at Nationals. The test was written by the same proctor as last year, and it was significantly easier than any o...

Re: Poorly Run Event Stories

This is way too long ago but I would still like to rant! Went to an invite last season and took a herp test; it was with one of my best friends who I could only work with once or twice since she had other priorities on Saturdays, but still the best partner ever. Took the test, turned it into the guy...

Re: Herpetology B/C

I have a question for y'all. So in the rules it says you can bring one official list, and in the past 2 or 3 invitationals I've gone to they've said "Okay so before we begin you are allowed to take out your list". But also in the rules it says you can bring any info from any source, so do...

Re: Herpetology B/C

Probably better to use hide or spoiler, since people who browse the question marathons may not want to know the answer the question right away. Ironically, this post preserves the original unspoilered version. Anyway, axolotl, you can go if you be more specific about which features belong to alliga...

Re: Herpetology B/C

Opinions on the nats test? ...lol Almost universally negative I'm sure. I wonder what people thought of the Div B test. My partner and I were pretty disappointed with the test. We could have not studied since regionals and done just as well. The difference between 1st and 20th was probably the matt...

I tend to find the best information on Wikipedia there are more pros than cons for using this site in my opinion. Yeah, wikipedia seems to be a good source of organized info instead of looking through lab research results and condensing textbooks. Anyone know how to tell the difference between lace...
