When creating tests for Disease Detectives, how should the format be for part two

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone knew what the main topic is going to be for Disease Detectives this year (2020). I think it could be Environment Quality, but I am not sure. If anyone knows, please let me know. Thank you.

In addition, they got rid of the entire topic thing for Disease Detectives last year, so you don't have to worry about that.

I'm pretty sure the information tested from last year will be mostly the same as this year (since the topics don't rotate anymore), so looking at the handouts on soinc.org would be your best shot at understanding question types.

A lot of the time, sample scenarios ("case studies") are given, and students answer questions relating to outbreak hypotheses, statistics, prevention and control measures, etc. etc.

In a more boring vein, you can format it the same as the rest of the test.

In my opinion, taking a lot of tests is a good way to prepare, as it gives you a feel for the kind of material you'll be tested on. On your cheat sheet, you'll want to put lists (i.e. Koch's postulates, Bradford-Hill criteria), definitions, and diagrams that aren't worth memorizing. Also, if you want to have some fun with DD, try CDC's Solve the Outbreak (https://www.cdc.gov/mobile/applications/sto/index.html), which can help you with different types of outbreak scenarios.

[SERIOUS] Is it just me or does disease never change? Ever since like 3 years ago it has been about food borne illnesses every year. Thoughts?
