Hey guys, my partner and I got Meteorology assigned as one of our events. What should we study for this year? One of the previous comments said that the topic was Everyday Weather. What should we study for that? Thanks

The rules for the event do a pretty good job outlining stuff for the event (under section 3. competition).

Check out the meteorology section on the wiki. It explains a lot and gives a general outline on what could be tested

How should I organize my cheat sheet? Is it better to put them in groups for topics? What text size is the best to use?

Anyone know about any good meteorology books? Want to see what has worked for other people.

Hi, That's AMAZING that you got meteorology this year!! Meteorology is an amazing event that you can really get a passion for! To study for it just review the topics. There is TONS of material all over the web, and lots and lots of books you can buy about this sort of thing. Just remember this is all fun, so don't take it so seriously. I mean take it seriously but you wont die if you don't win. We are all here to do this for fun because we love it, not because we got forced to. Just take it one step at a time! Good luck!

Hey! This is kind of a late response for your question, but I recommend using font sizes 6-8, depending on how small of a font your eyes can tolerate. Meteorology gives you 4 pages front and back, which is quite a lot! My previous cheat sheets have been in tables, putting similar topics in the same row. It would be easier on your organization by grouping them by topics, but honestly cheat sheet structure should be on you and your partner. This is what you will be using for the competition, so as long as the both of you work on it and know where everything is, then there shouldn't be any problems.
Hope this helped! :)

I bought the 2017 National Test CD, containing May 2016 National Competition @Wisconsin.
However, the test has no images files therefore about half of the test becomes useless.
Whom I can contact to get the missing images so we can maximizing the test package we purchased.

TIA!

Most likely the images aren't recorded anywhere. Not all event supervisors are good about taking pictures of samples and such. If it's an image file that you think is digital though, I would recommend one of these.
