Despite what your test-taking skills would dictate, you must read or at least thoroughly skim the story as you're going through the test. Even though it may just seem like fluff, there are generally a lot of good tips or directions in the story that can lead you to the correct answer.

If you're having a problem with calculations, like stream gradient or lat/long, I have a packet that I made back in my old Div. B days that I'll be putting up on the wiki soon.

Which tests are you taking? My team owned and practiced with nearly all the tests available for purchase online; you may just be taking a poorly written test or a test with poor answers.

The Rulebooks are out and no major changes have been made to Road Scholar. Then again, the event hasn't changed in years, so I'm not surprised.

Everyone ready to draw some profiles? :D
