Does anyone know whether Dynamic Planet E/V for 2016-2017 will be one or four notesheets? It seems that the change from one to four notesheets came after E/V was last ran as a topic, but I don't know whether four notesheets is now the universal policy for DP regardless of the topic or whether E/V will be the only topic to remain at one notesheet.
I am assuming it will be four because the information seems to be equivalent or greater than that of oceanography, but the fact that only one sheet was allowed the last time E/V was run makes me apprehensive. I have already started mine and I'm over half way finished with the first draft and It would be tough to be thoroughly prepared with only one sheet granted you could just memorize a lot of it
How do you already know the subcategories to put in the notes :shock: ? The wiki page from E/V is not even updated. I'd like to get started right now too, but idk what to base it off of :cry:
There's a few old tests you could probably get started on.

There will definetly be added info because I have practically finished my cheat sheet for E/V (albeit haven't really taken any practice tests, but its really thorough and comparable to my dynamic one from nats) and ive got 2-3 extra blank sides

So you just used the current info and saved space for the other categories???


About how many different subcategories are usually added?

Usually they don't change more than one or two things from previous years (like last year I think they removed buoyancy and added something else; I don't remember exactly, since I didn't do this event in 2015).

What are the old subcategories for E/V? I did not take the event then...

I don't know, I'm just going off of what the wiki says and a few tests.

More power to you if you manage to use them all :) I'm only halfway through the back of my first page, and don't expect to go over two pages.

Last yr it was pretty easy to fill all 4 sheets front and back, because I just went by what the topics in the rules manual were. The notes were the only reason we got 1st at regionals and 4th at states... the entire yr, all we were doing was working on the notes. We didn't try to memorize anything.
