Yes, the test is station-based. Some of the questions are weird (nicknames, etc...), basically stuff you can't normally get from a field guide. The nationals test from last year can be found online here with answers (It's for Division B, I don't think the Div C test is online):So I'm assuming the test at Nationals is station-based? At State and Regionals, ours was powerpoint-based. Oh and are there really weird things on the Nationals test? I know we need to know bird anatomy, parts of an egg, nesting, and such, but what about state birds, latin meaning, bird "nicknames" and other things (not sure what these are yet)? Do you have to be super well-rounded on the subject?
Haha sorry this is going to be my first time competing at Nationals and I don't want to epically fail ><

The Division C test was pretty similar, but I don't remember clearly; the ID was harder, though.
I agree with paleonaps, learn all you can about the birds.
