Okay, it's at http://medmyst.rice.edu.
It's a pretty interesting site... not much on classical epidemiology, but it does help memorizing pathogens and Koch's Postulates and such. Also, cholera and a bunch of diseases on the site are usually mentioned at regionals. :)

I got stuck with disease this year (well I shouldn't say stuck, that makes it seem like I don't want it) and if you study, it's an easy event. It can be kinda intimidating, ie. Nat'l events tend to be if you ever practice with one. But there is always the trouble of bad events. Disease events always tend to be pretty darn good. But at this years regionals, I was totally prepares and got 7th (which isn't bad, but I would have liked to do better). The event had barely ANY reading comprehension (a must in any disease event), very convoluted (not clear) math, and random bad questions. It was weird cause normally my region has good disease events. The only "good" part was the matching with vocab at the end :lol: But if you study teh basics/concepts (the training handout is a GREAT way to start) it's pretty easy to apply it to any event. ANd also, look out for outbreaks and such going on around teh world. There was an outbreak of cholera in Zimbabwe and that was on my event this past weekend. Good Luck! :D

Can you give an example of a bad question or some convoluted math?
