Does anyone find that topics determined in the rules to be state or nationals level make an appearance on regionals tests? I just had my regionals and even though cranial nerves weren't supposed to be covered, I memorized them in the week before the test. I'm pretty sure it's the reason my partner and I medaled, because we encountered several questions about cranial nerves. This also happened with ecology (I knew r- and k- strategy, but they were not supposed to be regionals material). Should I just go into each event with the assumption that anything in the rules is fair game, regardless of its proposed level?
Yes, on occasion that does happen, though it is not too common in my experience. I would know the basics on all the curriculum though in principle ideally state/ nationals curriculum shouldn't be on the test. I don't have the rules with me right now but I believe the Anatomy curriculum for regionals and state is the same at least for Division B.
Wait... cranial nerves are supposed to be national level? We have seen them every test of the season...

Thanks, I guess I know what to expect for next year. Question time: Differentiate a toxic goiter from an endemic goiter.

Hello! We just qualified for states and need some serious help. Our A and P score brought our team down by a lot and we really let them down. :cry: :cry: Could anyone give us any good textbook recommendations or just general advice for getting better? Thank you so much.
My favorite by far is Saladin, but Grey's Anatomy isn't bad either
What are you getting out of Grey's Anatomy, specifically? Its level is well beyond introductory high school or college.

It helps get a deeper understanding of the overall event in my opinion, but yeah, it is def higher than something than Saladin

Grey's Anatomy is an overload of information, to be honest. The best resource to use is that of an anatomy textbook, however, if you can't get your hands on one then your best 1) looking at the training handouts on the official scioly site 2) finding anatomy notes or lecture series on youtube. I wrote some notes for anatomy for SSSS I would be fine with posting if you'd like.

No. Only neurons have axons.

How well does Hole's Anatomy stack up to Saladin and Marieb?

Anatomy and physiology are closely related concepts which to understand how anatomical structures work. Both anatomy and physiology have been studied for centuries. Essay Writer

Do you guys think that all of the hormones given in the study handout with each organ are enough to study? Or are there more hormones that should be included?
