Fairly rare, although be prepared to answer how different genera/families are similar anatomically
Will identifying from skeleton also be rare?

I've seen skeletons on most tests that I've taken. You should definitely prepare for them.

What is the recommended layout for binders since you can only have 2 inches of material? Thanks for the help.

It's worth noting that even with two inches, you can still have over three pages per specimen on the list.

So focus on the list. Is there anything really major outside of the list to take notes on?

Definitions of key terms, pages on general anatomy, I also had a list of state reptiles/amphibians, a list on venom types and the snakes who had them, a list on conservation techniques and issues and another list on various breeding habits.

I can seem to find very much information about Batrachoseps (slender salamander). Anyone else have some luck?

The same thing goes for web-toed salamanders (Hydromantes)

Sometimes, info can be hard to find for genera since many websites are a lot more detailed about species. When I can't find a lot of info about a genus, I'll usually just look at some of the most common species and combine info from those. It's not perfect, but it works.
