Do you need FATTOM? I saw it in ONE archived test, but otherwise, all the other tests didn't have it. Should I study it?
lmao I was the one that put FATTOM on the wiki. I've never seen it in a test, and also, it's related to Food-borne illness. Which isn't the topic for this year, and it takes up some space in your cheat sheet if you do put it. So I don't think you're going to need it.
Even if you put it in your notesheet, it takes up like a line :P

Do I need to know about the diseases itself? Like what parts of the body it attacks and its symptoms(I am in division B). It doesn't say in the rule sheet

I would suggest knowing basic things about common diseases like cause, symptoms, incubation period, etc.

Since there is a romain lettuce ecoli outbreak, do you think this will be in the test? This is the site https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2018/o157h7-11-18/index.html

Some exams do include current events, yes. It's not always a guarantee, though.

I am confused how to calculate attack rate and odds ratio. Should I use the 2*2 table with an equation like (a/c)/(b/d). or (Number of new cases of disease or injury during
specified period )/(Size of population at start of period)

The first one is for odds ratio, and the second one is for attack rate.

Do you still need to learn about food borne illnesses this year

It will be tested on significantly less this year (it's no longer a topic).

Why is attack rate listed on part 2, then incidence proportion is listed on part 3, even though attack rate and incidence proportion mean the same thing?
