Depends on what you mean by "to get through". I'd do some online research on topics that your book does not cover. Maybe visit a local library to find other books as well.
I mean be a potential medal contender. The problem is, I don't know if Campbell & Reece covers everything needed for regionals.

If you have good comprehensive skills, I really would recommend Gray's Anatomy. Quite a few people have called it too dense, but if you ignore the unnecessary information and merely take what you need it is an excellent source. Also, yes, you should certainly be fine going solo if you have adequate knowledge. Last year I did four events and brought along a partner, primarily to act as a scribe.

Also, does anyone have any good nervous system tests or know of sources?

From my experience so far, tests usually don't go into too much detail about cancers. However, it would probably be a good idea to just know the basics of the most common ones.
Which ones would you suggest knowing? I'm new to the event and was looking through the possible cancers and there are quite a few. Haven't yet narrowed it down but just wanted your opinions?

I would know what a cancer is and how it is treated, and know the common ones such as duodenal, stomach, pancreatic, etc.

For the outermost layer of the mucosa, I've seen named as muscularis musculae and muscularis mucosa. Which one is technically the correct one?

Muscularis Mucosa is more common, but with medical terms there are often multiple terms from different jargon. But I'd go with the Mucosa one because I have not heard of Musculae one.

Well I'm interested in doing this event as a newbie and was wondering if you guys have any tips? I'm doing disease as well and in school I'm taking H bio and H chem (we've learned about digestive, urinary, and respiratory systems so far). I also have a human body book and borrowed this book titled "Anatomy and Physiology" from my school. Do you have any links or suggestions? Thanks!

The systems this year are Digestive, Excretory, and Nervous. You should research most of the stuff to know from books or websites (none off the top of my head right now besides the SciOly wiki ... ). Check the rulebook for what you have to know each system as well. I used the book "Functional Human Anatomy" by David T. Lindsay to gather info for the nervous system, everything else I got from the wiki (scioly.org, top of the page) or the official website training materials (soinc.org). You should probably gather your info, find what stuff is the hardest for you to remember, and put those parts on your notes sheet and memorize anything that's easy to remember.

Okay thank you! I'm planning on checking out the systems this weekend and starting a cheat sheet:)

I am doing this event as a substitute for Invitationals. Because I am only serving as a substitute, I do not have the rules. I want to be as prepared as I can for this event, so I have some questions.
1. Is there a copy of the rules somewhere?
2. What exactly is physiology?

Remember, I'm only doing this as a substitute.
