Yes, but from what I've heard Endocrine is mainly thrown in as an afterthought, with the test primarily being the other two subjects.

I think that depends more on who's writing the test and what tournament level you are at.

Endocrine is in the rules, I have never had a test that completely ignored endocrine. Some may have put a little less emphasis on it (even the national test had 1 or 2 fewer endocrine stations than the other 2 systems) but generally all 3 systems are covered fairly equally. Study your endocrine, it will seperate you from the pack.

Oh, I plan to. I know that it will make the difference.

how do you guys go about memorizing the muscles in the arm? my partner and i had a really hard time with that last year. there are just so many overlapping one another that we ended up putting many diagrams on our cheat sheet, and even then, we basically ended up guessing.

I used diagrams on the cheat sheet. One for the front, one for the back- that was enough for me.

you put a really good and detailed diagram on ur cheat sheet and match it carefully with the arrows on the test diagram

Right. If it's not detailed, it's a waste of space.

I know there really isn't a definitive answer to this question and it's probably been answered a million times, but what is the extent to which we should know certain things?

I mean for example, the contraction of muscles. Is it enough to know that the myosin pulls on the actin? Or should we know down to the neurotransmitters that cause the contraction and the proteins that help the ATP bind to the myosin heads?

It's safe to study as in-depth as possible.
