Also use the wiki but not for the info on there but check the sources at the bottom of the page.

I study sounds so much last year for there to only be one question at nationals for it learning from those mistakes this year.

I used a field guide, and the national list, not a binder. I won third place at state.

Hey! So I'm new to this whole forum thing, but I just wanted to say that the materials you can bring for Herpetology changed from last year. I didn't realize it until I read the materials list, so for anyone who also hasn't read through the paper yet, you can't bring a book anymore like last year. All information has to be in a three ring binder that can be up to two inches thick.

Haha I'm surprised you got third with just a field guide—in my state you would've gotten somewhere around 20th with just a field guide :(

Where'd you get a field guide that covered all the specimens anyway?

It's the Audubon society field guide to north american reptiles & amphibians, it was on amazon.

Since we aren't required to identify down to the species, I suggest you include information on both because they make up the family, which is what you do need to identify.
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!

Except you'll often be shown a picture of a specific species and asked to identify the Family or Genera. If you don't know the species in a Family, you're at a significant disadvantage...

Small correction: every specimen is in a specific species

Theoretically you could photocopy pages and put them in your binder, or just rip pages out. It would be more efficient to just make a binder, though.
