Also use the wiki but not for the info on there but check the sources at the bottom of the page.

I study sounds so much last year for there to only be one question at nationals for it learning from those mistakes this year.

I managed only a 1 1/2 inch binder last year and I didn’t even fill it all the way, that’s crazy how some people had 6 inch binders :shock:

I used a field guide, and the national list, not a binder. I won third place at state.

Hey! So I'm new to this whole forum thing, but I just wanted to say that the materials you can bring for Herpetology changed from last year. I didn't realize it until I read the materials list, so for anyone who also hasn't read through the paper yet, you can't bring a book anymore like last year. All information has to be in a three ring binder that can be up to two inches thick.

Haha I'm surprised you got third with just a field guide—in my state you would've gotten somewhere around 20th with just a field guide :(

Where'd you get a field guide that covered all the specimens anyway?

It's the Audubon society field guide to north american reptiles & amphibians, it was on amazon.

Since we aren't required to identify down to the species, I suggest you include information on both because they make up the family, which is what you do need to identify.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I'm learning stuff about oceanography, fossils, and writing/following instructions, yay for the third time!
