You could search for the specific information you are looking for online, but make sure it is from a notable website. Or you could just use normal textbooks which will most likely have the information you are looking for.
I agree the first thing to do is to look for specific information. To be more exact, you should look at info from the rules and search it. NASA is also a great resources, and you can ask teammates, coaches, or others here if you're unsure if a website has good/useful information.
Textbooks can be tricky. They usually contain a lot of information and don't always make a lot of sense when studying independently / in a small group (at least I've found). Also, textbooks cost money. Some like them, but I'm not sure of any recommended ones off the top of my head (others would have to suggest that is what I mean).
Have you looked at the national website page for Solar System? It is https://www.soinc.org/solar-system-b
. In addition to the rules, it gives many useful examples for resources and organizing information, such as the webinar
(the first link on that website...did nobody post this / I forgot??!??!!?), the links list, and the sample test (note, I believe the test was for last year, so it's NOT up to date with the rules...but it still gives an idea as to what tests are like). For reference, the webinar is like a summary of what the event is about, an ES/experienced person reads through the rules with you to give you an idea for what the rules mean / what to look out for to focus studying.
Hope some of this helps people!
