genes_girl wrote:I COMPLETELY agree. Whenever people ask me for help you can tell if they have been relying on the resource page or not. It is much better to KNOW the event and use the page as backup or if you have a partner who doesn't know the event then to rely heavily on it. The first thing I always say is to be able to work without it and just put the basics on there. Plus if you know the event you are quicker to get it done and in these events time is important. It's ok to spend hours/days/weeks just running the powders and taking tests to learn everything. Looking it up isn't the same as actually seeing the results.

Honestly, that's true in most events where you get resources- I used to do Rocks & Minerals, and we barely touched our binder. We had all the information in there, but if we'd had to look up every question, we would never have finished the event. It's true that it does somewhat unfairly condense the skill range, and I don't think it's necessary at all, but it's not so terrible. It was also pretty useful when I was still learning the event as of Regionals this year We got 2nd to the much more experienced kid on our school's B team, take that as you will.
