I haven't had states, but I've seen the Cation Exchange capacity, some weird fact about George Washington Carver, and I know that many tests have the EPA foundation date as a tiebreaker.

Okay, so I posted on this while we were still doing locals, and now we're headed to Nats...

Anyways, we've made a lot of progress. One thing we're a little confused on is writing balanced chemical equations. That turned up on the state test, and we ended up writing some gobbledygook that I'm sure the test supervisor laughed at. If you're wondering, we got first anyway. Anyone have any advice?

Apparently it was on some tests, but I've heard all you have to know were members of the 3 generations of pesticides, natural pesticides, and have a general knowledge about DDT.
