I know the professor who wrote the GeoLogic Mapping test for PA and he suggested these links to help with studying:

http://www4.uwsp.edu/geo/projects/geowe ... LABMAN.HTM

video on stereonet basics http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCvqSsgyCS8
Wait, you're getting Geomaps in div B O.O. I mean, I feel like especially given those two links (I have pages of others...gah, why can't summer just come, so I can write the wiki) that helps a lot. But idk...I feel like it is more of a Div C event (I feel like it's giving Div B'ers some Div C event...>.>).

Well, we told him S.O. students (even B division) are pretty amazing!

same for us. It has gotten to the time to print the cheat sheets and finish up our binders :? always the most stressful part in my opinion. "Will that one thing I made the decision to leave out be on the test?" will the thing that took up half my cheat sheet even be tested on? I always become INCREDIBLY protective over my cheat sheets too. as in, they go in a protector sleeve, a no-creese hard sleeve, and finally a manilla folder clamped shut with 5 binder clips :D I saw my friend show up to an event only to realize a pencil in his bag had penetrated Through the sleeve and the paper, leaving a gaping hole :shock:

2 more days.... Scary thought. It always seems like there is sooo much time to study for states but now, I feel really stressed out with cheat sheets and especially building events (it may not go as good as you planned and tested for). :?

Tomorrow morning? East Stroudsburg's pretty far away from states, and we would usually leave after school ends. :?

I wish you all the best of luck. I can't wait to see the schools that eventually represent your state in Ohio.
