How do you find the date a quadrangle was made? There seems to be a lot of dates at the bottom left
The date is in the bottom right corner, and photo revision (if applicable) will be right under it.

The bottom left corner can also be used to find information with a date, such as topology compilation date, Field Checked date,...

Hey for anyone who has had state or regionals, are people following up with the change of less emphasis on top and the use of Internet genraged maps?

Idk, at our regional there was a serious focus on topo, with many more questions.

For azimuths and bearings, should the magnetic declination be added/subtracted to the original degree measure?
For example, from the gravel pit to the top of the mountain, the azimuth is 236 degrees. If the magnetic declination is 10 degrees, should that value be added to the value or subtracted to the value or not even be included?

Ok I'm going to say this as a warning for any states that haven't happened. Some places are taking this "rule change" close to heart. There might be profiling. At my state they only had like 10 questions out of 30 on topos, none on state highway. And instead of full sized maps they were printed on a 8 1/2 x 11 paper and had bezels, making it impossible to read anything. The first 20 questions were all on the terms listed in the rules, but they went really specific so be warned.

I've never done it since it seems like those questions always refer only to the topo map, not the actual world, but it would be a good idea to ask your event supervisor(s) :D .
