/Me calls starpug and asks for his sage advice.

I think they probably do, for reasons stated above. Included either way though, should be a "How to make a circuit" guide.

yes you may have to build a circuit during an competition but like most tests it truly depends on the proctor and amount of resources available as to what you will have to do

On most tests, there is at least one hands-on section; it's usually building a circuit, and there can also be magnetism labs as well (i.e., given a compass and a piece of string, figure out the poles of this magnet).

thnx guys. also, do we only need to know the diagram of a circuit and a dc circuit, important terms, and ohms law and kirchoff's law? i think that is all we need but i am not sure. i already finished studying the ohms law and kirchoffs law. i just wanna make sure that i am on the right track. thnx! u guys r a great help! :D

that is a good start you do need to know the laws that govern elctricity and magnetism
all about A/C and D/C current

How to use electrical meters (ohm meters amp meters etc)

how to create and draw circuits the parts of circuits (resistors campaciters) and the math behind each part (R1+R2+R3=R total, resistors in a series equation)

every thing on the rules

ok here is a good place to start studing All about circuits
also remember the Wiki

Remeber specific questions will get specific answers ;)

How heavily do they test you guys on magnetism topics? Just wondering.

The test i just took at an invitational wasn't very in depth into any specific topic just a all covering test

I think some of the test will be very in depth with certain topics depending on who wrights the test.

Did they make you build a circuit? I missed the invitational. :roll:
