How many pens at one time do you get? I know you get two different colored pens, but can both my partner and I have a pen each?

They give you ample amounts of powder. Like Purplepeopleeater said, you really shouldn't need any more than they give you.

At Invitationals, my partner and I were each given one pen for the notes, and then another for the test. It makes sense that way, you'd want to take different notes at the same time.

Hmm, so how should my partner and I practice? With one pen or two?

I would suggest taking tests with just one pen/pencil

Then if you are only given one (which is the most common) you will be set. Also, it works well if you do the tests and your partner writes the observations or vice versa, then you only need one writing utensil and you can both be contributing.

Also when taking the test, or when practicing, use the name of the test liquid that is given such as H20. Almost all of the judges will dock points for not using the scientific formula.

Anyones that are below 120 volts and aren't D Cells, just to make sure check the rule booklet.

Oh, I never knew that. Thanks for sharing. c:
Most of the time it's easier to just write the formula anyway, so it's not like it's a hassle. :3
