Are there any practice tests for which I don't have to buy extra maps?

Well, what maps do you have?Are there any practice tests for which I don't have to buy extra maps?
Sometimes you can get a topographic map for free, but you have to print it and tape it together.Are there any practice tests for which I don't have to buy extra maps?
My partner and I have our binder full of information and examples with extra tools. Our team carries zip-loc baggies with all of the stuff we need at our competition which is where we keep our tools and never forget string.I prefer a binder, knowing where all my materials are and having only what I need. I can also contain all of my tools in a binder and wont have any problems carrying stuff around.
Well, just the ones that we have to bring for states. The AL-GA highway map.Well, what maps do you have?Are there any practice tests for which I don't have to buy extra maps?
I usually do the topo map part at competitions (it just works out that my partner is better at highway and I am better at topo) and I would say most of those questions are about information in the margins (like magnetic declination, the keys, and the latitude and longitude that you can do without calculations) and straight-line mileage (there is also a lot of straight-line mileage on highway sections). There is some latitude-longitude stuff also, but those can take a while, so there isn't too much usually.What are most questions about on the tests? Can someone explain the UTM system and the Public Land Survey System? Also, what are the best tips to prepare for this event?
