According to the rules, glaciers, glaciation, and long-term climate change

All of that pretty much. Not a super broad topic, but you have to know your knowledge well to be successful. Something I have seen my students struggle with is identifying features based on topographic map images, since they aren't really familiar with them.

SciOly wiki is here, but your best bet is to also go to the Wikipedia glaciers page here. Get as many terms as you can and begin taking tests to find out what you don't know. I personally wouldn't read a textbook, but it can give you a lot of general knowledge as well as fill in gaps in your notes.
Thank you but I have some more questions:

on the test, will there be only some vocab terms and what would I need to know in context with maps and things of such...

From the tests I've seen so far and the invitationals I've been to, I've only seen one topographic map. You will need to know all the vocab strongly, but maps aren't the most important thing. That said, there may be maps at some invitationals/regionals/states/nationals, so I'm sure a decent understanding would be helpful. Just don't make it your main focus.

Does that mean that if I study some Quizlet terms, it will be enough...about 100 terms?

It depends on which terms you're studying... you need to know the vocab regarding each point listed on the rules. If you've got them all thoroughly covered, you're good.

Does anyone have the test exchange for the 2019 Dynamic Planet invitational?
I didn't go to it and I thought it would be good practice for upcoming events.
Thanks ;)

You can use this link. As a general note, the links to the test exchange and archive are all on the scioly.org homepage.

Does anyone know where I could get good resources to learn about specific surveys and studies? I've seen a few on tests but I'm not sure where I can learn more about them.

Try looking up the survey or study directly, it may help
