AHHAHAHA it wasn’t the mixtures, it was the workload. When I went to states, they gave us the maximum amount of powders, probably two mixtures, a decent amount of metals and liquids, flame testing for fibers, density test for plastics, microscope for hairs, and another section for fingerprints and chromatography. And of course, a long ananlysis to accompany this info. It was so rough, even the best teams couldn’t finish. But obviously, this might be different at your state. Just remember to be extremely effcient and be able to trust your partner, because if you have a big work load, you’re not gonna have time to check each other’s answers.
