Yes, the test packets from previous nationals are sold though the soinc.org store. http://store.soinc.org/c-7-test-packets.aspx

As far as the difficulty of the tests at Nationals - it depends on who is writing the test and who wrote the previous tests that you've taken. Nationals tests aren't always necessarily "harder". Last year the Fossils B test and the Reach for the Stars tests were incredibly easy, but the Fossils C test was very difficult and very long.

The rules say we can have one double sided page of notes. Is it ok to have two single sided sheets back-to-back inside a plastic sheet protector?

it's easy thought to just photocopy one side with info onto a blank side, so i would do that.

Yeah, just photocopy it or get someone to. If not, I don't really think it will be that big of a deal. It's basically the same thing anyway.

I've seen tons of teams do that at different competitions I've been too, and haven't once saw someone say something to any of them.

I don't know. I keep all of my cheat sheets in a folder and carry around the folder the whole day. What my partner and I did for various events involving cheat sheets was print out one double sided copy and one two single sided copy (two single sided copies are easier for us to use). We then visit all the rooms before competition and ask them if they would allow single sided copies or were the just going to allow double sided copies. I'm not sure about sheet protectors though... I mean, I can't see the harm, but I guess the best thing to do is ask before competition for that as well.

QUICK QUESTION
Mountains DON'T form on divergent boundaries, right?
My Division is C as in Cat, providing the coach lets me on the team after missing the first meeting.

Attention partners: I will always, always be mad at you for something. Even if you study.

No, divergent boundaries create rifts or ridges, I do believe.
