Just simply look for books that are titled Climate or that have anything to do with clouds.

I was looking at the draft rules for Meteorology and saw that there could be two pages of notes instead of one. I thought that was sort of interesting since in the past it has only been one page of notes. It would be helpful though since there are sooo many different theories in climate and the Koppen system..

Draft rules are just that. The final rules specify 1 page per team.

After looking at the Meteorology rules, I have decided that Climate is by far the hardest subject in Meteorology in the rotation..

Completely Agreed, Climate is the hardest. Last year, I didnt even need to study, the test was SOOOO Easy, and I woulda done good at nats from what I heard from the team that made nats 1.5 miles down the road. I had watched storm chaser shows since age 5 so it was easy peasy

Keep in mind, though, that every team in the country has to work one the same topic, so while it may seem more difficult to study for, it will seem that way fro many other teams. Therefore, if you do well at competition while other teams struggle, you have a great chance at excelling.

Yeah, the Nats test reminded me of our regional test.. It wasn't hard but it was so long.

The regional test was the easiest test. Invite was harder.
