To be honest, I haven't started it yet. But I think I'll put on diseases, forearm muscles, and stuff like that.

Did anyone else think the PA test was lengthy, and did anyone finish the stations with time to spare?

Does anyone else think the PA state test was a tad unfair? I saw questions on national-level diseases (thank god it was matching) which gives an advantage to teams that already know they are probably Nationals-bound and have studied the stuff already, and the stations made it so that for teams that split the systems, one person was frantically working and the other was sitting there trying to help or BSing the questions from the previous station. I guess it really does separate out the good teams from the not-so-great ones.

Also, I got there halfway through the first station 'cause my other event ended late, and unfortunately, the first station was on the muscular system, which my partner knew almost nothing about. I think we left at least half the test blank or wrote down wild guesses.

As far as National level stuff on the test is concerned, I would say about 1/6 of the test was Nationals material. The tiebreaker questions about functions is Nationals, the bones of the skull were nationals, and the national level diseases were on the test. This is not the first time this issue has come up in Anatomy, as I remember nationals stuff on the test last year as well. For this event, for the future, I would just study the national level material before states.

Yeah, I'll do that next year. The only issue was that Nationals stuff wasn't supposed to be on the State test. I don't really mind the tiebreaker being National-level though, because it shows which team is more dedicated and has looked at more info. However, I don't remember National-level stuff on last year's test. Care to enlighten me as to what it was?

Ah, no wonder. I did circulatory last year, so I wouldn't have any clue about skull bones.
