Ok thanks. The national test was more concept-based than most regional and states tests which seem more vocab based. Do you see this is your state as well?Yeah basically. How does energy transfer between the earth/air. It's a pretty small portion and I don't really remember there being many questions related to that. Knowing temperature moderation/hydrogen bonding will get you through most of the questions.
Do you mostly include pics in your cheat sheets or words?Yeah NorCal's Dynamic State test is always RIDICULOUSLY long where nobody can finished and is basically a test of how fast you can recall vocab terms, etc. There are 2 essay questions that are difficult, but the test is merely difficult because of speed not content. There are some really obscure pictures and things from Wikipedia but I doubt those terms are useful outside of that one competition.
Yeah they give us a lot of space. Good idea with the textbook answers.A combination of both. My partner usually does the cheat sheet, but I'm a believer in leaving the cheat sheet as the last thing you do and filling it with things you don't want to memorize. Having pictures on there is also beneficial if you want to ID things but that's not really the focus of the event. Diagrams and strong, prewritten answers to common essay questions that you can copy onto the test are much more valuable. I guess some vocabulary is always nice to have a textbook definition of too because with 8 sides it can sometimes be difficult to fill it up completely.
23rd at nats?Last year, I did mostly definitions and a few maps and diagrams. We forgot the formulas, and we didn't do too well. (23rd!) Don't forget the formulas!!!!!!!( For density, buoyancy, etc.)
