How are you planning to study?

Obviously, satellites will probably be the same, but the new element of hydrosphere throws a wrench into my preparation.

I'm thinking there will probably be a bit more questions on the hydrosphere related satellites also (Aqua for example), and definitely stuff on water cycle and potentially microorganisms in water.

I can almost guarantee that there will be both a question on the Aral Sea and a question on Oil Spills.

I think you can guarantee that question for most RS tests... :P

Seeing as how the NM State test has been exactly the same for the past 2 years, I think I know what to study...

You never know, the last two years there wasn't really a major topic change; this year there is, and with potential for some other game-changers.

I'm very interested to see how the Hydrosphere is implemented. In my experience, water has had a large part in this already, with the Aral Sea and glaciers and stuff. It could end up being like Food-Borne Illness is to Disease Detectives, or something like that.

Potentially a larger focus on ecology perhaps? I don't exactly remember a lot of questions on forests in the past two years, but, as East said, water has already been a big part, so to add more content, I guess the only place to turn to is ecology.

Looking forward to this year's remote sensing event. Does anyone know any good websites for studying other than CCRS and NASA?
