They'll probably keep the muscular system and change skeletal to... maybe digestive?

Also: what was the Nats test like??

Projected event schedules from Maryland SO say muscular and respiratory for B, along with endocrine for C. Of course, this is always subject to change.

Maybe I have a chance of getting onto my high school team then. YAY!
The national test was incredibly easy. It had too many tie-breakers as well. We made one error that cost us a medal. If there had been less tie-breakers, we maight have done better.

The Nationals test was disappointing. It was way too easy and there was too much time at each station. People could easily look at the cheat sheet and answer the questions. It was comparable to a regionals test. The test last year was 10 times better.
2010 Nationals:
Anatomy: 1st
Science Crime Busters: 5th
Bio-Process Lab: 5th
Can't Judge a Powder: 10th
Disease Detectives: 15th

I was very displeased. Easy tests are never good,but I liked the time limit.

It was good there was a time limit, but I still think they gave too much time.

Yes, and I don't believe time is a tie breaker for this event.

No, I meant I thought there was a good amount of time. In fact, they could have given more time, but I liked 4 minutes. Even three and a half would be good, but I don't like working under pressure.

Do you guys think Anatomy's a pretty straight forward event?...by that i mean, as long as you study the material, you'll have good chances? Obviously this is a memorization heavy event so memorizing so much may not be as easy as it sounds (or doesn't sound)...
