So I just took a practice BPL test with my Hooch partner. I checked the answers afterwards and one of the answers was 70 calories. If you were checking the test and I put .070kcal would you grade that as correct?

It was 70 food calories, so it would actually be 70 kilocalories.

I'm sort of surprised by that; once you understand it, the event isn't that complicated, but it takes a while to get to the understanding phase, so I expected there to be some questions.

Maybe most of the people who are in it this year were in it last year (like me) or have a partner that was in it last year (like my partner).

In Tennessee for FCS Invitational I had a Dichotomous Key to answer for a station and it was on insect families. That was one thing we failed on. Any tips to get faster?

Since there are 2 pages for this, I'm going to post it in both.

For question 50 in John Richardsim's test on the exchange (which is a good test-go try it out!), what other answers could be given?

Well, that answer given in the answer key would probably be the best answer, as it wouldn't need other materials and is relatively simple, but if you described a scenario in which a different container was used and the empty container mass was subtracted from the mass of the container with the solution I would accept it. Another option might be placing a different container on a balance and taring/zeroing the balance, and then pouring the solution into that container. These are just some of the ideas I've had, but this just feels like something where there is more acceptable answers I just haven't thought of.

On a test, I don't know which, but there was a question with reading a food label. I am also on Food Science, so I knew how many calories/gram there are in fat, protein, and carbohydrates. I used that knowledge as a shortcut, but got the wrong answer because their numbers were obviously made up and they wanted you to calculate the total number of calories and then take the percentage, and bla blah blah where you didn't need to know how many kcal/g there were in fat. Soo...I hope that doesn't happen at the competition.

A good event supervisor will intentionally make up data so that you have to read it to get the right answer (then again, I don't know much about event supervisors in Maryland). I'd suggest you don't use prior knowledge in most cases for this event unless you absolutely have to.

Wow, this subforum is dead.

How often (from your experience) does the test include metric to standard conversion stuff and vice-versa?
