Opinions on the binder? I'm surprised they upgraded us from a sheet, but it will probably make Forensics a ton harder. :|

Depends on the test. If it is a short test, then a binder could be a huge help. On a long test, it will hold you back. Look at the history of the event at your specific competition to see what would be best, but never depend on the binder- it should be a reference of last resort.

Last year when we had two sheets of paper me and my partner actually struggled to fill them up. I'm honestly not sure what you'd do with a binder. I mean, we didn't have certain information that we should have (mostly the trivia style questions), but we had the space for it if we had accounted for the random stuff before the contest. Personally, I would just bring a sheet or two, maybe three, with everything nicely organized. I think a binder is just going to slow you down, even it's well organized (also, space constraints).

I was also really surprised when I saw the change to a binder because I did Forensics when only one sheet was allowed, and I managed to fit everything I needed on that one sheet (with small font :lol: but still...one sheet). The only thing I can think of right now that might require more than a sheet of notes is probably mass spec...I'm sure there are other things too, but that's all I can think of now...

Does anyone have good site for Mass Spectroscopy? I had one, but now it is unavailable, so I cannot get any good informations on it.

You might have to dig around on here a little bit, but Mass Spec is there and explained pretty well.

If you want help, you will have to be more specific and perhaps also post the questions you need help with.

I need help... I don't know anything that deals with chemistry so I basically don't know anything about this event... Any suggestions on what to study first? Like what are good sites & techniques on studying.
