Potions and Poisons during its first year didn't have much variation in tests. It was fairly the same every competition, and I can do well as long as I don't forget a conductivity meter. This year, however, had a wider array of topics for the chemistry questions. I probably would struggle some.

Thermo easy. (or probably Compound next - most anything physics)

I find Disease Detectives to be pretty easy, but that may just be because this is my fourth straight year on it.

For me, Mousetrap during the 2018 season was super easy. Hovercraft would take a close second.

Herpetology
I know the binder is time consuming but at an invitational me and my partner had about 3 pages in our binder and we placed 11th out of 30 school
We got second at regionals too

Fermi Questions.
It isn't really knowledge based. All you have to do is take a lot of practice tests (1-2 per week). The content you need to know is tons of units and constants that you can easily study anywhere you go on Quizlet.
2020 events: Protein Modeling, Ping Pong Parachute, Designer Genes
2019 events: Protein Modeling, Sounds of Music, Fermi Questions
I failed 2020. Hope I will do better in 2021.

1-2 per week? I was probably doing 1-2/day at some point.
