I'd prefer even more, but this event sounds more like satellite imagery than map reading. For shame.

Yeah, well, that is similar to map reading. For me, the prospect of a mix between Road Scholar and Ecology sounds like heaven, and with satellite images-ecstasy!

if you have done ecology, you will do well on this. at new york states last year, my partner (who did ecology) said that exact questions were on the test from an old ecology test he found.

Why would an ecology test have the same questions as a remote sensing test?

Ecology deals a lot with human impact as well. It's not the main focus, but usually makes up a fair portion of the test.

Well, yes, I realize that, but the exact questions? Or were they slightly different, quizbowl?

I think he meant that they were "exact". But since forests was in a few years back, they could have had a satellite image and questions that appeared on an old ecology test.

if you are thinking about doing this event, try to at least have a good understanding of ecology. i was so happy my partner was on ecology; we knew nothing and forgot our sheets but still managed top 20.
