I see that Woz stuck to her guns on the note pages change. One page is going to be mighty difficult to fit all the ID info.

Is it? At SOSI they said they started with allowing a binder, like physics events, and then went to 5 pages, and now are down to 1.

I mistook this as CB/Forensics, sorry.

Maybe they wanted it more in parallel to Water Quality?

For the oak, would I put information about every species every? What would be the boundaries for the tests???

I would put general oak info, since apparently there are about 600 species. The tests would probably ask you to identify that something is some type of oak, not the specific species. The questions will probably be general as well. (Or should be)

The entire Quercus genus has similar characteristics, so an overview covering the general info would suffice

My reading of the rules is that ES are supposed to ask about ID and toxic effects, which should narrow it down a bit...

From experience, I can say that they ask for more than that. Sometimes they ask for unique biological traits, sometimes they ask for distribution. What I do is use my herpetology format (Distribution, anatomy, diet, etc). It worked pretty well so far, considering my placements.

How are you all dealing with going from 10 pages to 2? We've gone to 5-point type. What other strategies? I've seen whole pages reduced greatly...

Honestly, just memorize all the chemistry stuff. That's about it. 10 pages was MORE than enough for potions
