true flavorflav, i do hope that is more of a study of epidemology at states, which it should be...the test we took at regionals reminded me too much of english class :|

Well, nationals are usually ridiculously long, so I agree with you on that.
But for regionals and states at least, there's usually plenty of time, so my partner and I generally work together on the test.
Just my opinion.

Yeah, our regionals was pretty much made up of easy questions on really basic knowledge. A few questions about analyzing diagrams and making an epicurve and such, but that was it.

Medmyst is pretty good for memorizing diseases and pathogens and such, but not so much for classical epidemiology.

See the reason Me and my partner like to split it up is that, since we trust each other with taking on a part of the test alone, we can then finish fairly quickly and then still have time to check over (well at least for regionals and states)

That's cool. Haha yeah usually my partner and I are both OCD about letting the other person do it alone, so we work together.

Would anybody be interested in joining my Disease Detectives Study Group....i have prepared a bunch of excercises and tests to practice on, and if some other people were interested, we could help each other out by making tests, and learn a lot in the process.

I would love to get some of those study resources :lol: But Disease isn't my best event, definitely not my best event, and I don't know how good I would be at making practice stuff. I could try though.
