What are the main topics related that should be studied and are there any techniques for studying these topics?
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.

I don't have any real pictures, but what you need are charts and diagrMs for the 4 cycles and biomes.

I think that once you have the main pictures of the cycles/pyramids, you can just write the other things on your cheat sheet. I recommend using font size 5 and using bold, italics, and underlines. Using those and colors makes information easy to find in the competition when you are in a rush for time. Hope this helps! :D

I usually use size 4 in calibri. I also highlight a lot of main terms. Thanks though!!

Hi I was curious about a technicality in the rules.

In section 3.a.ii. (and many other similar sections), it talks about biomes, but it only mentions four biomes. Does that mean we only need to know about those four, or are those just examples to get us going, and we should actually have a comprehensive knowledge of those biomes plus a bunch of others. Same thing for the human impact section and a few others.

Thanks!

The four ones they listed are the major categories of terrestrial biomes. For example, the forest category includes tropical rainforest, deciduous forest, and boreal forest. On most of the tests I took, they have asked about the specific types.
