Well, this is my first year, but we are doing practice tests and also just reading over our notes over and over. I also print out my notes in 4.5 font at Microsoft Office.
Welcome to SO!! Another tip I would recommend is looking over the powerpoint on Soinc.org and researching the topics on there extensively. That's what I do!! :D
Thank you for the tip

Has anyone been to a green generation Science Oly. competition?
For those who have been to the competition, on the day of the competition, do you think the test given to you was hard or fair?

I'm certain many of the users here have competing in Green Generation at tournaments. I suppose a more specific question asking about experiences or topics to study would have better discussion and would be more useful to know. Though since tournaments vary, the quality of tests some competitors see at one tournament isn't going to dictate what you see at another.

Also, on the forums we prefer if users avoid double- or multi-posting (i.e. multiple posts in a row on similar topics by the same user) if possible.

In Part 2, when they say Population Growth Issues, are they referring to how humans directly affect the environment as communities begin to develop?

Aw, I miss this event so much and I didn't get in it this year bc of event conflict.

When I did this event as a trial event in state two years ago, population growth was basically how humans will run out of resources soon, etc. it's hard to explain, but I highly recommend going on the official scioly website, they have some great resources and definitions.

what i do is i go down each topic in the rules, put each thing on the cheat sheet (a basic preview of everything) and when i'm done i fill it with detail, i'm talking about the cheat sheet because i mainly learn from the process of making the cheat sheet, but everyone is different, but that's just how i do it. i also have an ap environmental science book that i read.

also this is my first year doing it so you might also want to hear from other people as well, i was just sharing what i do to study.

It's also always a good idea to keep an eye out for current events related to the environment. Even just looking up "environmental news" or skimming through some headlines online can lead you to lots of different current environmental issues that make for great examples on test questions.

Does anyone have any pictures they recommend putting on a cheat sheet? I already have all the cycles, pyramids, and some other miscellaneous things. Thanks!! :D
