Hey! This is kind of a late response for your question, but I recommend using font sizes 6-8, depending on how small of a font your eyes can tolerate. Meteorology gives you 4 pages front and back, which is quite a lot! My previous cheat sheets have been in tables, putting similar topics in the same row. It would be easier on your organization by grouping them by topics, but honestly cheat sheet structure should be on you and your partner. This is what you will be using for the competition, so as long as the both of you work on it and know where everything is, then there shouldn't be any problems.
Hope this helped! :)

I bought the 2017 National Test CD, containing May 2016 National Competition @Wisconsin.
However, the test has no images files therefore about half of the test becomes useless.
Whom I can contact to get the missing images so we can maximizing the test package we purchased.

TIA!

Most likely the images aren't recorded anywhere. Not all event supervisors are good about taking pictures of samples and such. If it's an image file that you think is digital though, I would recommend one of these.

I would also suggest if you use google docs that you use the font Stint Ultra Condensed

That's kind of hard to find sine the event itself is witten at ahigh school level so I would get a textbook becuase most of them do have pictures and stuff, but like i said, it's written at a high shool level so I won't exactaly be for kids

I believe they are referring to isobars, isotherms, etc. in the atmosphere. You can also look into things like advection and the pressure gradient force.
