How do you buy past nationals tests?

The text exchange is still in the process of being finished, which is why you can't find any Division B practice tests right now. You can access the "old" test exchange by going to the Wiki and pressing "Tests" next to the event names (or through this link: https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/2017_ ... Detectives).

However, past tests are probably based on Ecological Causes and Population Growth, rather than Foodborne Illnesses, which is this year and next year's topic.

Yeah, I've just been going back to the 2012 practice tests and using those, as well as the Division C tests. The two aren't too different, so it's been working fine.

Same. The only difference is that Division C has more content for statistics and bias.
