It did in my final year (2 years ago) and last year as well so I would assume so unless they are changing the rules.

haha yeah. That should be fun. Dudeincolorado, are you in Div C, or going to Div C? (My real question lol is have you competed in Forensics in the 2009 season? Is a resource page helpful for Forensics?)

This will be my second year in C, and yes I have competed, the resource page was helpful, I if it was lost or stolen or something, I would be able to work without it. So in short yes, but I didn't need it.

When I used it to compete this was the same situation for me. With the exception of maybe the polymers. It was helpful but if something happened to it I/ we could work more or less just as well without it.

The only things that are great about a cheat sheet

1) helps you remember something you forgot
2)And somebody misplaces it

since i have ocd and we have to handwrite the resource sheet, i tend to spend hours making mine.
for me, it's like a review and it helps me organize my thoughts and tasks one final time before competition.
It also makes me feel more confident because if i suddenly blank out right before the test, i still have the sheet.

I never use the resource sheet in the actual test.

Same here. I never used my Crime notes sheet, but I wouldn't have remembered half that stuff if I hadn't made my sheet so painstakingly. [For Envi Chem it was different- I made a beautiful notes sheet and I relied totally on it lol.]

I did SCB for my first time in the 2008 season and got 3rd place... then I did it this year and didn't do so well because the test was completely different. What do you think the test is going to be like this year, and should what should I prepare for? :?: :?: :?:

Um...mostly about identifying unknowns from a crimescene..
Er, they will give you a crime scene, will unknown powders, fibers, plastics, etc. You get Iodine, HCL, water...and a kit that you bring to help you identify them. Then, usually you have to write an essay/analysis thingy at the end.
My favorite event ever lol
