It's not that big of a change... not as much of a change between variable stars and galaxies. I wouldn't be surprised if some normal galaxy questions come up anyway

agreed, but they really upped the level of ambiguity in regards of galaxies. I mean, like I haven't seen so many numbers in the past 3 years. ^__^;
tho it should be interesting regardless.

btw, does anybody know where i can get a copy of the 2010 nationals astronomy test, My team got nailed bad on that one.
2011 Scioly. Game on.

You can buy the test packet at the soinc store. The images are usually terrible quality, though.

This year, the test packet is in CD form. At least that's what I got in the mail. Just so you know. It's so much better than scanning every page :P

Yes each person can bring either a binder or a laptop, and a programmable calculator
