Discussion for Bio-Process Lab B.

When you take your practice tests, be sure to time them because the stations are usually timed.
At our state competition we had 4 minutes between each rotation.
How else are other competitions set up? How many minutes did you have for specific tasks?
It'd be good to hear from those with a bit more experience than me.

Well, in my experience, (which isn't a lot, cause I only did this event once) there are stations and you answer questions and you don't have lot of time for each station. cause my partner and I were like frantic going from one station to the next, and my partner was arguing with me on how to do the key thing and we couldn't finish...so you should know how to work microscopes too. and seventh grade science helps.

well you should know seventh and ninth grade biology and if you don't, read the textbook and MEMORIZE it! (according to what's on the test) Well at least that's what my partner and i did. And If you don't understand it look it up on the web. there's alot of sites that explain subjects better than in a textbook. (my opinion)

I did this event for the first time last year, and I liked it. Most of the questions for us, you either knew or you didn't you had to have a lot of background knowledge, and if you didn't you might not get a single question in a whole station. We knew most of them, so we got first. I think we had like six minutes ish per station. I didn't really study for it, because it was a lab event so I didn't know what I should study. In the end, it worked out though :D

you need to have general biology knowledege so what i do is i read an AP Biology book or an SAT II biology book or any biology textbook.
Also, you need to practice conducting labs and time yourself while you're at it. And know how to use a bunch of equipment like triple beam balance.
and also stuff like indicators and what they mean when they react with a substance.
