The font isn't that small on the PDF, but the margins are pretty thin. You could either adjust the margins on word, or try printing the PDF from a different computer or something.

I dunno about how easy getting tests on the wiki is...

After all, if a BOOK is allowed for this event, the event must be strictly timed. Strict timing means either PowerPoint slides or stations, no overall just "I hand you a test, you hand it in after 55 minutes. I can give it back later." Therefore, after each invitational, the school isn't gonna hand you all the stations or the PowerPoint. They'll hand you your answer sheet.

The one test already one the wiki was never used at an actual competition as far as I know. Somebody uploaded it as "Practice Test" so I assume they wrote it themselves, then I converted it from pptx to word and put it on the test exchange.
yea im in division b but that was exactly what happened last year for fossils and we barely had time to use our fossil or our binder

:lol: Okay so I had a time conflict at an invitational, and I didn't do birds. And the people on my team didn't even have the list and so our B team beat them. :D
THIS IS BARTA!!!

The National list is supposed to be 2 pages.

In the rules it says there is a "three page Official National Bird List" There was a clarification on soinc for that that said

"The list on the website has been reduced to 2 pages. The list was posted on the website after the rule book went to print."

On the test posted on the wiki, I was having trouble with station 10 question 3 (doesn't it do both?)and station 15. Any help would be appreciated!

On Station 10, Question 3, it's referring to a Snowy Egret's behavior while hunting. I believe snowies hunt with other birds.

Station 15 is a Cooper's Hawk. It is in Class Accipitridae. Diurnal (the opposite of nocturnal), means active during the day. The bird in the lower photograph is a juvenile, I think, because of the lighter plumage on its breast and belly.

"students may tab the guide"
This may be a silly question, but if we're using post-its to tab our field guide, are we allowed to write on the post-its?

edit:// Oh just kidding guys, I should've read the thread first. It seems that you are allowed to write on tabs, your tabs just aren't allowed to be very big.

Yes. The official clarification on the size limit is that the tabs have to be "small." The only remaining trick is that you have to make sure that your idea of "small" coincides with the event supervisor's.
