Yes, any more resources for us would be useful. Was one place away from medaling last year and would love the additional practice and data :)
Heh, sat next to a medaling team and by eavesdropping on them, I sort of know how to improve the team strategy other than just memorizing facts this year.

cool. threw together a Practice section on the site that randomly shows one of 236 questions. It's just a first draft, it could be much better - I'd be happy to address any thought / ideas you have.

Maybe a google group (aka email list) is a better way to do the questions marathon? Posted details & a link to the group here - http://fermiquestions.com/#Marathon

When me and my partner went in for fermi questions i think they gave us scratch paper but im not sure. We thought we didn't do well at regionals that we got last place but we suprised our selves by placing first :o

Taking a practice test tomorrow. Wish me luck guys!! :? I've never done this before. By this, I mean both Fermi and Science Olympiad in general.

There was one question asking the price of a ferry trip to the Dry Tortugas islands. I ended up taking that trip last summer. Other than that..... I liked it.

So what unit are Fermi Questions generally in? (scientific or standard)

I've seen them in both. Sometimes neither. (ie: "How many iPhones would it take to cover the face of Mount Everest?")
It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with everything. Remember that tests can have questions on LITERALLY ANYTHING that has a number for an answer.

Does anyone have a good in depth list of units that covers all the normal ones and as many obscure units as possible?
