It was just a long test. Good one, but long. I mean we had 25 min left and I was only on 10, of course my partner was working too but man!

We barely finished, but then again most of what we wrote was BS. I'm surprised we even placed in the single digits XD

How do you how do you Guys learn the concepts of this event such as calculating strike and dip?

All those things you mentioned are great resources. You have to know how to google things as well. Look at the rules, and the topics they cover and google them. Look up strike and dip problems, geologic time scale, types of folds, etc, you will find great articles! And the wiki is a great place to start!
