I was his Crave the Wave partner, and he did the section on the electromagnetic spectrum and sound waves... but anything that was hard, he just handed over for me to do :D Still, he definitely helped.

On most events, we split it up and then check each other's work at the end. I'm not doing Crave at Nats, but that's basically what we do for all our events- split and then check at the end.

i don't typically split with my partners unless we are pressed for time. This comes out of a partial distrust for my partners, and also nature tendency to make people make stupid mistakes :| . Last year at nats though, I had to split with my geniusly smart partner because the event sup talked forever and gave us 10 minutes to to 50 questions (we got 9th)

I only split up if I thoroughly trust my partner, and unfortunately that hasn't happened often. Most of the time we have enough time to do the entire test together anyway.

i think that splitting up events is the best way to go for events like disease...you will get the event done much faster and then if you have enough time, you can check over eachother's work. Last year at nationals, if me and my parter hadn't split up the test, we would have never gotten as far as we did. It was soo long and on top of that, it was the hardest event i ever took. We still didn't complete like 2 pages though...if we didn't split it up, we would have only gotten barely halfway done. That's why i think that you should have partners that you can trust because sometimes you just can't do it together. At states, my parter and i had to split the bio-process stations too because they were sooo long :D :D
Events this year:
Picture This
Forensics
Disease
I am extremely mad that Experimental is not at regionals!

I split all my events at States-Road Scholar (between state/mapquest and topo), Env. Chem (between the testing and the multiple choice) and Dynamic Planet (just split right in half, but worked together anyways haha)- Pentathlon was split too, although I didn't choose to split that one.

I did fairly well. 1st in bridge, built completely the day before, 1st in ecology though it had 96 questions and my partner did only 5 and an essay. 2nd in stars, and 3rd in meteorology even though they tested weather instead of climate. I failed at compute this, getting 19th. I hope this is not true.
