Thank you for your advice. I am not very experienced in Fermi Questions because this is my first year.
I will probably redo my past mistakes to see if my reasoning has changed.
2019 events: Protein Modeling, Sounds of Music, Fermi Questions
Other scientific pursuits: USNCO, PDB video challenge coming up!

Do a lot of practice questions and tests:

New test exchange: https://scioly.org/tests/
Old test exchange: https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/2019_ ... _Questions
This season's question marathon (can be pretty useful to see how others are solving problems): viewtopic.php?f=297&t=12395

Make a list of useful formulas and memorize them. Also keep a list of common values that would be useful for solving problems (e.g. mass of earth, charge of an electron, avogadro's number, etc.) and commit those to memory as well.

Here are some stuff I've made:
Logs and constants quizlet set
Random values quizlet set (a few things in here are very Michigan-specific)
