Does anyone have a test to use? The only test I can find from recent years for Severe Storms has a broken link (Although, I may be looking in the wrong place. I'm inexperienced with the Wiki). My partner and I didn't do so well last year because we started studying late and focused on things that weren't as useful as they could've been so I don't want to repeat that.

Everything on the site for Severe Storms should be here. The Booth test is apparently of questionable relevance to Severe Storms (even though it was during a Severe Storms year), if that helps.

Isn't next year climate or something for meteor? This is really skewed towards the people doing ecology.

Meteorology's Climate topic doesn't really have much to do with Ecology (based on looking at Ecology tests and competing in Meteorology in 2015). Regardless, there will always be some overlap between different events.

In respect to looking for test in test exchange. Just know that Meteorology is a 3 yr cycle 2014, 2011, 2008 were all years where Storms was the topic. Test are in archive. If still having problems, PM me.

There's one by the weather channel that's much cleaner and easier to read at https://weather.com/maps/currentusweather. Only downside is that it doesn't have numbered air pressure
my events tend to deal with really big or small things ..
so now i do fermi : ^)

**UPDATE**
Here is one with layers so you can pick whatever reading you need to practice with:

This one is good because it has station models as an option

There was an (in my opinion) extremely challenging test at a recent invitational where the easy questions might be the hard questions at Regionals. There was a lot about wind directions under various conditions (fronts, parts of hurricanes, figured out from maps of various kinds) and other map interpretation stuff. This is an event that, for me, is easy to learn and very hard to master. Knowledge of last season's topic helped with this test, too.

Thanks for the post. I've taken 5 test this year plus our coach has found a few other from other invites that we didn't attend. The trend I have seen is writers make them easier to grade, which I get. Lot of pressure to get them graded fast to make the award ceremony deadlines, etc. I hate when D is a & c, E is all of the above type questions but also know that if you can eliminate one, then you can eliminate all of the above. I like when they are balanced; equal material from the overall topics. I have had a few where it seems like the whole test is thunderstorms. And yes, I agree, Everyday Weather is an important building block to this year. I think the best questions that really help separate great from good are the more story problem type questions or as you said, given data, require you to analyze and come to conclusions. Thanks again. Have 4 weeks to prep for our states.
