Are there any specific tests or resources that was helpful for this test? B/c I literally did not know how to do 75% of the questions and ended up placing 25th. The format was different from what I expected; I thought there would be more trivia based multiple choice questions....

I like the textbook Glaciers and Glaciation, I felt like it helped me understand the processes better

Yeah, I have that book. Thanks for letting me know! Still can't really find anything on how to calculate the height of the grounding line given the densities through...

Nope it's still glaciers because I think it's a two year rotation

Next year will be glaciers again. I think it'll be Fresh Water after that?
I enjoy Dynamic Planet.

I dunno what you mean about resources being relatively scarce? I seemed to find a lot on glaciers that was quite interesting.

Yes, can also corroborate, the ES in our block confirmed that it would be Oceanography, switching to one year rotations so that the order for Division B would be Meteorology Climate one year, then DP Glaciers/Climate Change the next year, followed by Oceans. Nice transition imo.
