It could be either stations or a test, however the last two years were stationed.

Well, for Divison B last year, we had a test.

Judging by the quality of the test, I'm pretty sure they'll have replaced that ES (Div C has a new event supervisor, so you might be getting the previous Div C event supervisors).

Are you talking about the Div. B test? If so, I hope that the new supervisor has a test, because I suck at stations :(.

For skeletal national level, they say spinal fractures, are they just referring to compression fractures? Because I thought that was included in the "fractures" section of regional/state level comp.
Yes many of the vertebral fractures are compression fractures, but be sure to check out the detailed fractures, like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinal_fracture.
I have no idea if the event supervisors will be so detailed as to place very detailed identification questions.

If the ES asks a question about Holdsworth fractures, RIP

EDIT: BTW, I mean that it's going to be really hard, and no one (incld. me) will know what it is (I hope :P)

AHHHHH!!!! I'm currently freaking about Nats (First time going).

Anywho, I have a few questions which would be awesome if somebody could answer them.
1. So is it a 50/50 chance on whether it is stations or test? (Division B)
2. For x. in Skeletal System, how in depth do they want us to go? Does it just stop at labeling the bone and knowing the foraminas, or should we know the crests, and every little tiny detail about each skull bone?
3. Follow up question, does anybody have a list of the foraminas that we need to know and what passes through them?
4. Does anybody have any National Level Difficulty Test, my partner and I could take? I want to see how difficult the test is.

Please help! Thanks in advance. ;)

Hey guys! I have a couple questions for those of you from more competitive states that are attending nationals this year. I've been attending for the past few years, but Rhode Island's scene is pretty pathetic so we don't get access to any competitions other than states to know what to expect at the national level.

1. For fractures, is it worth memorizing classification more in-depth than comminuted, greenstick, compression, oblique, etc, and Salter-Harris? Stuff like Boxer's, Pott's, Bennett's, Duverney's fractures. Is that stuff even relevant enough to make it on the notes sheet?
2. Anyone who took last year's Div. C nationals test, how many minutes per station? Any strategies you guys have for test-taking in stations? What about just a pure test that's ridiculously long?
3. The big one here... For anyone who took last year's test (either B or C), do the national event supervisors actually stick to the rules or not? I've heard that there were some pretty specific questions like "name 5 types of Psoriasis" and stuff like that, so I hope they have at least stuck to the rules for topic choice in the past?

Thanks.
