We've revamped it a bit. All 'national' trial events are available on the national website at: https://www.soinc.org/learn/trial-events Note that Density Lab will be trialed in multiple states this year, and likely will be a full event next year.

A middle school science book should be a good start. You might want to check out a chemistry and a physics book fro a library.
Also, Your science teacher should be able to point you to other sources.
Do not forget wikepedia.
As far a hands on, I doubt if any of that will include gasses. Too difficult to provide good equipment. Makes for great test questions.

Considering the vagueness of the rules, I believe that the best method is to do what the person above said. There are hundreds of books in the library or online for density, buoyancy, concentration, etc.

If you're looking for buoyancy formulas, then here is a good source:

Does anyone know if we have to calculate the values using significant digits?

density lab was a trial event inside of the 2018 Nat tournament. Is there any link I can follow to get my hands on that Density Lab trial test paper from nats or state. Cuz in the 2019 season Density Lab is no longer a trial event, it's a real lab event.
