Re: Physics Lab B/C

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

So we had state on Saturday (we took first overall, but 12th - our team's worst rank - in disease), and the test was about coral reef. We didn't touch our cheat sheet. Just felt like complaining to you guys. It was a pretty big "WTF, mate?" moment. I'm not sure how 11 teams did so well...

Would that not take away some of the efficiency?
No, quite the opposite.
I know this discussion was a few pages ago, but could you please explain how and why partial load testing increases efficiency? Thanks!
