What are you guys going to put for your equation on cardiac output?
The equation I have for cardiac output is CO = HR X SV.

CO is cardiac output, HR is heart rate, and SV is stroke volume.

So this year, the test format is written rather than multiple choice. What material should we be studying and to what degree?

"Anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system" is quite ubiquitous. How specific are we supposed to get? are we supposed to remember every last mechanic, term, and detail?

I mean, if the test writers want it to be it could very well be multiple choice. However, a good test is never completely multiple choice.

This is one of the harder questions. You want to start out basic, and just go into deeper detail as time progresses. Generally tests get harder as the season progresses.

I would say if you go further than a regional then it will get more specific regional and invitational are not easy but they are not the hardest so if you do plan on going farther or your team usually does, do the more specific stuff that you need to.

There is a TON of information given in the powerpoint and handouts alone tho, enough that I'm starting to think that the test makers are just trolling us into studying stuff we don't need to. What should I be focusing on studying on and what can I safely ignore?

By the way, thank you all so much for helping me and being so supportive! I really appreciate it! (=^··^=)

I don't know if you have started mulling over the content or not, so if you haven't, I would suggest you watch Crash Course videos or Khan Academy lectures to get a brief basis on each of the three systems.

From there, cross-reference with the rules and go more and more in depth with each topic as you progress.

I don't think you should EVER "safely ignore" any topics that are in the rules because, in my past experience, test makers are capable of writing about every topic in the rules.

The handouts and PowerPoint are very helpful to begin, but another helpful thing would be to possibly acquire/borrow an Anatomy text book from someone you know.

I agree. You should never ignore topics, because during a test, there's a very high chance you'll find yourself regretting that decision. If you don't know the basics at all, along with the soinc resources, Khan Academy, and Crash Course, I would also suggest reading the wiki to get some more information, then study those topics in significantly more depth.

Theres a medical course with a bunch of anatomy
