Is there a point in studying for this? Wouldn't you just need to have 1. Taken a lot of science classes or 2. Read a lot of books?

It's not so much studying as it is practice.

no you NEED to study in order to do well

(long ex)
for this you could have the 3 smartest people in the world but if they cant communicate with each other they wont do well yes it is important to do one of the two above but that only covers you understanding the term but not how to draw it so that other people understand it also if its a difficult term to draw like microtissuescones (made up term) have the hours of practice make it alot easy to draw and have the other person get it like instead of draw what it actual is i would draw a microscope - the scope then draw a box a klenex then draw a cone its easy and the cone im not sure if anyone else would get it except my partners

(short ex)
but how will you communicate?

You need to practice, but also do things like make flash cards for all simple things, like have your symbol (not like a alphabet, just a real representation) for all the most common things they might give you and that might be part. This could include aerodynamics, force, vector, pick an element...

I just did the tryouts at my school and I really wish we'd had time to practice, because they hit us with words like "deoxyribose nucleaic acid" and "trophic strata" and we were totally unprepared.

You mean deoxyribonucleic acid?
For that, you draw 2 underlines to show # of words, then you draw a double helix.
As for trophic strata, I would skip.

You could do an energy pyramid with arrows, but I bet people would get stuck on trophic level and not come up with strata. Probably best to skip.

ugh i dont even remember. i think we skipped both of those (the problem was that in addition to deoxyribonucleaic acid we ALSO got "double helix" as a term. it really threw us off!)

I'll try to post a list of words from the invitational that I went to in the Wiki.

If you see someone drawing a double helix (dna) you should just shout out certain things every time. I mean if someone did that you should immediately start shouting, dna, deoxyribonucleic acid, double helix, rna, ribonucleic acid, nucleic acid, gene, mutation, allele, trait, etc.
