For one thing, study my amazing fossils wiki. Other than that, I dont really know, cause my scio coach taught me everything. I'd suggest waiting for it to go up on the soinc.org site and following one of the links, or just browsing the internet to see what you can find. Also, theres a book im doing my AP environmental summer assignment on called "Wonderful Life", and its about the Burgess shale find. Its pretty interesting.

yeah, you should wait for the list, so you get to know what genuses to start studying. Or if you want, you can try to dig up an old list from several years ago. They probably have similar organisms. Also, look for a copy of the Earth Science regents reference tables. They middle 2 pages help a lot, and the other pages may help for other earth sciences events.

The regents is a standardized test in NY state. Everybody in the state takes it for their classes. They're very easy, and for the sciences (besides bio) you get a reference table. Google "NY state earth science regents reference table", and try to get the most recent one.

The Draft List has been posted since around June 19. There may be minor changes, but for the most part the posted list should be correct.

Wow, i didnt see that before. As far as I can tell, its very similar to the list 3 years ago. What I would do is start making your binder. Put a page per genus, and a few page for each order and class for anatomy, behavior, and stuff like that. The easiest way is to just google the scientific names and get as much info as you can about each one.

I think theres also a typo on the list. The trilobie genus Elrathi should be Elrathia
