It was surprisingly not written by the CDC (I think) and it was about Salmonella and this thing cryptosporidium. It was long, it took me and my partner up until 3 minutes left to finish it. Most of the questions weren't that bad, but some were annoying/hard. I ended up getting 7th somehow :D :D

Math was prevalence, rate, relative risk, and a few others. For rate, there was a table and there were some blanks in either the # of cases, rate, or # of people in population columns. It asked about an epi curve. Some interpreting data. There was odds ratio and you had to interpret that answer.

Congrats pjgscioisamazing on the scholarship. Funny enough, when Climate was around 3 years ago, my partner and I took the silver at Nationals. You're lucky to have received such a nice scholarship!

There's really nothing new this year, I suspect, so the preparation should be lighter. Yeah, less work. :D
