Actually, no. The clarification states that (and I will quote directly from their official response) "Each student may bring one 8.5" x 11" two-sided page of notes which means that if 2 students compete as a team, the team may have two 8.5" x 11" two-sided page of notes."
I just want to let everyone know about this clarification, even though they have not posted it online, so that you guys won't have to cram everything onto one page if that is what you are doing, and so I won't be the only team at nationals with two pages awkwardly trying to defend myself... :)

Huh. It does appear that way. Well then, I guess go ahead with your two sheets, although my personal opinion is that Chem Lab shouldn't really allow ANY note sheets, haha.

That was honestly one of the beat Chem Lab tests I've taken ever (nationals).

Does anyone know what they mean by Chem Reactions as one of the subtopics for Chem Lab? They said equilibrium and chem reactions/stoichiometry as the sub-topics for this year. Do they mean single&double replacement, Combustion, Decomposition, Aqueous, Solvent, etc. types of reactions? Thanks!

I think by that they just mean understanding how chemical reactions work, and how to use stoichiometry to perform calculations relating to those reactions. Knowing the types of reactions would also be helpful to know, but that's probably not quite as important. Basically, though, anything that could be considered basic chemistry is testable, as all other topics build off of that.

By them saying equilibrium and chem reactions/stoich for 2014, is it going to be similar to the equilibrium questions in last year's Chem Lab?

i would think so...

in addition, for stoichiometry, do you guys think that gas stoichiometry is testable? ...and are limiting reagents/reactants considered stoichiometry??

Gas stoich and limiting reagents are both undoubtedly fair game for next year.

As an incoming freshman who will be the one taking up Chem Lab because I'm going to a new high school that will only have 9th and 10th graders, is there any advice you could give me? Where to start studying?

I'm a rising Sophomore and by looking at the rules from past years, I would recommend that you take a Chem class first. But since you want to do it this year, basic stoichiometry is found in Chem 1 classes with some more advanced content in AP Chem. In my Chem class last year, we didn't learn any equilibrium, so I would assume that's AP Chem content. You could probably Google all the information if you want to do it that way, but try to ask the Chemistry teacher at your school if you have one. My Chemistry teacher was amazing last year and she will definitely help me this year because I haven't learned equilibrium yet.
