Study, study, study, and don't forget to memorize along the way.

If you can, try to get an AP Biology book, like the first 10 or 11 chapters are relevant to what you need to know (with the exception of the first like 3 Chapters). Also, try to focus on Biochemistry. For example, a lot of the tests I have taken involve interpreting graphs of Enzyme activity. Don't get into Genetics, look at the rules and learn as much as you can about everything listed.

Hope this helps.

What are the topics, exactly? Mitosis? Organelles? Organic chemistry? Specifics would be nice.

Read the rules packet. It is all in there.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Rules packets aren't as good as actual people giving examples. (In fact, rules packets are confusinger. Who knew?)

The people on this site aren't here to answer your broad questions (your question basically is "what is cell biology?"). Read the rule packet before you post questions on here. I just looked at Cell Bio and there literally is a list of things you can study, numbered and everything. There are also sample questions. If that's too confusing you may want to try another event.

You are going to need a lot more in-depth stuff than just an AP Bio curriculum.

Not really. The AP Bio textbook does go pretty in depth. I took the test at Nats with one day's notice (one of the captains couldnt come, long story) so I studied the AP Bio textbook, cause I was in the class.
And most of the stuff was in the book. Sure I didnt remember it all because I studied it for like 2 hours, but for people with more warning, studying the chapters on cells is plenty.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

Here's a more specific question:
How is the test formatted? All multiple-choice, or are there short answer sometimes? I would imagine it would vary by test writer, but in general.

That's it. It's going to depend on who writes the test for the competition. There's really no standard among SO tests.
Please read Forum Rule #2:
