well, its stations and you dont get that much time, so its usually multiple choice. my state test was multiple choice too.

and it sometimes isnt that easy especially if you didnt study or something cuz there are so many...i always got stuck on all the different brachiopods :| :roll:

And sometimes in a multiple choice test, you'll get a test writer who accidentally confuses terms like Carbonization with Carbon Imprinting, and then the correct answer isnt on the test. Or petrification with petrifaction, though those might actually be the same thing, I never really did learn the difference.

I never was sure about that, I always heard conflicting answers. I think I'll go look it up right now.
Ok, they appear to be the same thing. Thanks, Google!
