Hi,

My state tournament is next week, and I was wondering to what extent ESs tend to test participants on conductivity testing. I know it's in the rulebook, but I haven't heard of anyone who got tested on it. I'd also like to know how to do that, so it'd be great if anyone could give me an explanation :)

Heh, funny story...

Being in Hawaii, we don't have much of a picture about how we are against other teams across the nation, so we plan an annual trip to California for an invitational. Last year, I did Potions. When we were packing our kits (we have two teams) we found that we had only one conductivity tester. We debated and our Potions coach decided to give it to the other team because they were less experienced.

Lo and behold, our lab was conductivity and, as no one in the entire school was good in chemistry, I didn't know that I could use pH paper to determine conductivity.

Long story short, we got a goose egg on the lab and were one place below the other team, who botched up the lab. Also don't study exclusively for conductivity but be prepared.

according to the wiki page, wild carrot was changed to western water hemlock. I feel barely anyone knows of this rules change, so should I keep both on the cheat sheet and will tests like nats and states use wild carrot or hemlock?

Nah, I would take it out and add extra information somewhere else. They aren't allowed to test you on wild carrots, so if you do see it, file an appeal. The question will probably be thrown out.

This was discussed earlier in this thread. I would keep both on the cheat sheet if there's enough room but if you're short on space, keep only hemlock.

yeah, we took off wild carrot and added water hemlock. We didn't have enough space to keep wild carrot. I think they threw out wild carrot because it is the single most lame toxic organism ever. people literally eat it with no regard for the poison really. Water hemlock on the other hand is the most deadly plant in north america.

Yeah I was kind of confused when I was researching it cause it seemed pretty safe to ingest for the most part.

I, for one, am glad that it was taken off. It's much more interesting researching an extremely toxic organism.

With one page of notes, how is everyone putting the periodic table in them? I can't seem to be able to fit a periodic table that I can see.

I actually put it in really well. Maybe it's because I don't have a lot of info lol. I just took a really clear periodic table color coded and added the values myself. I's about 1/4 of the page, landscape.

Yeah we don't have a ton of information in our notes (cause a lot of it you just have to know) but if you want to clear up extra space, delete the margins, make the font size 6 (or smaller if you can), and use a narrower font. Consider what you have memorized, and think about deleting stuff you already know. We actually ended up making our own chart to fit our needs, so think about that too.

We made our information a 4-5 font, Arial, and were able to squeeze in bigger pictures of important things, such as the periodic table, as well as charts to help us fill questions out as quickly and accurately as possible. We still have space left over, so it's a bonus for us to add whatever we need to in the days leading up to states.
