Darn, you even beat me.
For CJAP for me, states was the standard fare; H2O, HCl, and NaOH. Nationals, on the other hand, had those three plus Phenolphthalein, Bromothymyl Blue, and one other (Benedict's? I dont remember). We managed the first three and were halfway through phenolphthalein when time was called. Every question was on the last three that we didn't get to test.
At nationals time is always an issue, my partners and I didn't finish the Forensics nor the Chem Lab tests and came down to the wire on the Env. Chem test and didn't finish the tie breaker. Heck, in Traj I barely had enough time to get all 4 shots off even without aiming.
