Did anyone find the nationals test difficult? We got 7th, but were sure we failed it afterwards. Our salinometer didn't even work, we couldn't use one page of our notes because we stapled our pages together and one had writing on the back, and all I knew was the Invertabrates, and only barely. We blanked out on some easy acronyms like BMP and got lucky on SAV. Yet, despite all this we almost medaled. That said, good job to everyone who competed!!(Espcially the top 6) That was my first competition and it was awesome. Water quality is a fun event!!!
Wow, you got 7th? I would've said i did much better than how you described it, but I only got 14th. Me and my partner took last years nats test twice in preparation, but we forgot to look over the multiple choice. Things would've gone better if we had done that... I thought it was pretty difficult though. But definitely a good test.
