I know how you feel, I beat the first place team in Solar System at states at regionals by a whole 2 times their score. Then at states all of a sudden they get 1st place by a large margin, we get 8th. It really sucks not getting placed but you have to live with it.

Personally, for disease detectives I would recommend the CDC Principles of Epidemiology. At nationals, (if you are going). Most of the questions, like 70% will have to do with cases. So I would practice writing case definitions, different kinds of studies, epi-curves, and other things that have to do with cases. Good luck.



PS - Aren't you the girl from Mira Loma?


Thanks for the advice!
No... Mira Loma got first in disease, I'm from Bay Area. I think you're confusing our GGSO scores, we got 6th and Mira Loma 5th.

Also our school has never gone to Nats lol


My bad, I thought you were somebody from the discord.


No worries, birds are very popular animals. (Assuming you looked my username and it was similar to that persons)
I like birds.

What’s the difference between coherence and biological plausibility? They both seem to be talking about how the association makes sense with current known info.

Plausibility is when there's a proposed (plausible) method that the cause could lead into the effect. Coherence is if the interpretation of cause-and-effect does not go against the existing facts of the field.*
