Oh ok. How much harder would you say state tests are? (My guess is that there will not be any mutiple choice questions and maybe more identifying type of questions.) How much time do you think I should spend preparing since my competition is next Friday (4/5)? What topics are likely be asked the most? (I mean like would the moon, pluto, or whatever be asked the most.) I am thinking about remaking my cheat sheet but I struggle to choose what to put on it...
I just took a states test (FL). The test was A M A Z I N G, everything in it was on the rule sheet. It was 170 questions, almost all was short response. As for your cheat sheet, for each celestial body I would include rotation period, orbit period, distance, internal structure, atmosphere, formation, resonance with other bodies, any unique features, eccentricity, notable geologic features, diameter, mass, size, what it's classified as, anything else really. But yeah I have that and more for each celestial body. For Oumuamua and 2007OR10 though, you will need a LOT of information. A lot of the test was identifying but for the most part it was easy, it will ask for anything and everything, so prepare. Some questions were kind of not on the rules (Vesta and 2010TK, unless I don't remember the rules). However, solar is a fairly easy event and if it's easy for you. You know that it's easy for others, so include everything. Also, on the test it was asking for surface temp a lot in Celcius, so make sure it's Celcius and not Kelvin (jokes on the test makers i knew how to convert it). Good luck at states and I wish you the best!
Oh ok thanks! But why do I need a lot info for Oumuamua and 2007 OR10?
