On the Test Exchange I was looking at the 2005 Illinois State test, and question #2 said to list 6 items vital for survival if you were trapped in your car in a blizzard. The answer key says that one of these items is "A Can with a Lid." This doesn't seem right to me..can anybody help? ;)

That was the only supply my partner and I got wrong, and now that I think about it, it makes sense that a can with a lid would be important.

I believe so. I would appreciate if you did, actually. :D

So I feel I'm leaving something major out of my notes. Is there anything anyone has come across so far that you haven't prepared for to watch out for?

Acronyms. They really caught my partner and I at States.

OK, so I have placed 1st 2 x, in the great state of Ohio (NE Ohio) at Invitationals, plus a 3rd at another. I also have medaled 3 times in Optics including at regionals. Just found out, because I am a 9th grader, I am the odd man out in competing at our State meet. Did I mention I finished 4th last year in the state, and now I don't even get to compete. Have to say I am very down right now. Best of luck to you all. Cherrish the chances you get to compete. I will stay away from sharp instruments for a while.

We got a diagram of different cloud types and had to fill in the names but it wasn't awful. There was a matching section of "isos" and you had to match 7 terms (I only remember isotherms, isobars, and isobaths) to their definintion.
