The test was interesting, and quite long. However, it wasn't a bad test due to the fact that it covered forest biomes stuff and satellites, along with some mathematics. :)
Yes... although I think there could have been more on forest biomes, and human impact on them
Yes, I'd also agree that the biome stuff didn't have much to do with the human impact, except the last two questions about the effects of deforestation. It was basically a few different tests from different states combined because I did see NCSO (North Carolina) written on the top of one of the pages.
Yeah I think most of the pages were from the NCSO test from last year it seemed like... I wonder what the average score on the test was though :lol:

Were any of you guys at the St. James Thunder Invite? If so, what did you think of the test? I liked how it was in stations and how there was a lot more image interpretation rather than just basic questions. I got ninth place overall, :( but it was partially because my partner couldn't come.

I second that: good difficult tests are hard to come by.

Ya... at the bishop foley invitational, i had no clue what i was doing and i got 9th lol. it's a little sad when someone can get a 25.2% on a test and it's the 9th best score! it was pretty interesting that Mark Vanhecke actually was the proctor of the test. his site has some good stuff to study with too

Dang, the Clio Invitational test was ezpz...
Apparently it was based on the ccrs tutorial? 'Cause that's all I studied and I knew like 90 percent of the test. My partner got the last 10 percent. I think I'll post the test later when I get it back.

EDIT: First on that test! BAM!

If you are given a map and you're supposed to estimate the area, what should you use?
Apparently transparencies aren't allowed. Meh, my teammates would like to know.
Call me coach.

A ruler?

Anyways, does anybody have any hard tests? Say, from nats last year, or states (preferably a competitive state?) or a really competitive invitational? Say, Bishop Foley (since bogoradwee got 9th with 25.2%, I'm assuming it was hard)? I'd really like to take those. Put them on the test exchange.
