I thought nationals was supposed to be harder than regionals and state...

I can't believe they taught you how to do exponents. :x
Really? That's kind of sad. I think at nationals at least one of the participants would know exponents. :? And nats usually is supposed to be harder than the other levels, but sometimes they make it easier. Like this case.

Yes.
I thought it wasnt terrible. I mean it was tedious, but the event always is.
It seemed to be a somewhat fair representation of questions.
By the way, I was referring to the C division event. I have no idea how the B division was.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

I don't think any of us knew what happened. :?

the whole test was just... stoopid. I feel like I've wasted months studying for something way too easy.

Now that I realize it, that was my 6th grade science textbook! Not making it to nats, I felt like I HADN'T devoted enough time, as I was really unprepared at states. My medal was a true phenomenon.
