US National Chemistry Olympiad...any BTDT?

Recommended Posts

Dd is interested in participating.  I have no idea where to begin.  Has anyone participated and can get me started?  Dd is taking AP chemistry right now.  


Where can I get her signed up?  Do I need to organize a competition?  What kind prep does she need to do?

How to register students to participate



Lots of past year exams can be found here



AP Chem is a good starting place. Next year, if she's still interested, ChemWOOT is excellent. http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/school/woot-chem 


Mine did 3 years of USNCO, let me know if you have any other questions.

My son participated the year he took AP Chemistry.  Our public school doesn't participate, but I was able to find another local school that would permit him to join its team.  


The format is similar to Mathcounts - the students from all the participating schools meet at an area college on a Saturday morning and take a test. The top scorers from that test are invited back to take the national exam.  The national exam is an all-day affair and also includes a lab portion in addition to the written test.
