Also does anyone understands meoisis and mytosis?

Meiosis and mitosis are 2 large topics. I would highly suggest that you find a good bio book, probably high school at least if not an AP book, to go over it. You could learn the gist of it form your middle school book, but to get more in depth in the proteins and cycle I would use an older book. The internet works as well but it can be less reliable with mixed content.

Thanks, and about the tree identification, does anybody know which types of trees will be on the test like, North American trees etc.

This looks a lot harder than I thought it would be. Are we going to have to accually do any labs? Are there any good sites about genetics? that is the part that I really don't understand. People keep talking about stations. What is that? What about the tests. Like I said, I thought that it was just like a lab that you do in science class, except maybe a little harder.

well the "labs" are the stations, a couple stations, they're usually not that hard... some of them at my regionals was to graph a scatter plot, find the volume of some objects, find the weight of some objects, define some objects and use a microscope. the tests, well they're written tests...

does anyone know of any more sample tests beside the bio-process sample test?

you could just use any of your old 7th grade science tests...or 9th grade bio

only 2!?! I feel bad for you. we are two weeks away. mostly the operation of microscopes, microscope parts and basic genetics, phenotype and genotype, genetics vocabulary, pedigrees and karytypes, basiclly like what other people have been saying just to know 7th grade biology and chromosomal deficiencies, punnet squares (how to use them) and a ton more, and no i am not listing them in priority, some measurement related questions, maybe tree identification (I haven't even gotten that far yet)

Does anyone understand why you are required to have goggles for this event? I have never had anything on this event that would even remotely require goggles. Usually, the only thing that isn't pencil-and-paper is the microscope station- of which there is always at least one- for which you take off your goggles anyway! I guess it's possible that there could be a "dangerous" lab on this event (I mean, there must be a reason it's in the "lab events" section and not "study events", although that probably has more to do with the fact that "lab" is in its name), but essentially it is a pencil-and-paper study event.

Presumably the same things you're always allowed to bring- goggles and a writing instrument.

i think that the goggles are just to make us feel like it is a real lab...since we are always supposed to wear goggles in lav events, i think maybe they are trying to get us to be...whats the word????

They WISH it was a real lab event, so they make us wear goggles... Still, the most dangerous thing to your eyes in that event is probably your own fingers xD

also bring a calculator.
I don't know the word...?
also we had the find the volume of some random objects, so every time we put it in the beaker the water would splash up onto us, thats probably why our answers were so off...
