MYSO doesn't seem too interesting compared to Mini-SO/SateliteSO. Its fine if you didn't take it. It'll come next month anyway.
Tryout Events (by order of skill):

Meteorology
Road Scholar
Fossils
Disease Detectives
Anatomy and Physiology

I took it and was 90% THROUGH when it randomly reloaded into a 404 error page. I had to restart with 5 mins left so I didn't do very well. The test itself was pretty easy though I definitely would've finished.

... sciolyperson1 doesn't do disease, he was just encouraging discussion about this specific MYSO test in the appropriate subforum.
I think that MYSO looks very cool, it's a good supplement to actual competitions (probably not fair to compare it to mini/satellite so because they're completely different concepts). I might participate in later months.

Aw that sucks :( I hope you still had fun taking the test though :)

Yeah it was fun but I was really disappointed. Great start to the season though- there's nothing like a long test with a short time limit to get you in the SO spirit!

the calculations for DD are the hardest for me, also with the study types (case-control etc.) any tips?

You could do more practice problems of those types, make a table with the different study types and their different characteristics, or keep the formulas for relative risk/odds ratio on your notesheet and make sure you also include the situations they're used in and what they tell you. With practice you'll get it!
