      I agree that frantically searching for a particular book (which I recommended earlier on this site) is not that important.  I, too, survived the AC, although in much better conditions than another poster. 

      Common sense will win the day.  I would love to share ideas about misconceptions some day with everyone on this list -- maybe at a future conference for NBC teachers, when we get our passing scores!

      Good luck at the AC.
      One thing I found helpful was notes on other areas of science, for exercise III Unifying Concepts.  I teach physical science, and had tons of notes on earth and life science, taken form middle school teacher editions.  I actually used some of those, but the Sylvan lady was astonished at the amount of paper she had to throw away.  (I have it all on computer in case I have to do it again next year!)

      Good luck,
      Mary Jo in MO

          Students' Science Misconceptions". The author is Joseph Stepans. The
          publisher is Idea Factory. The publishing date is 1996. It is specifically
          geared toward middle school students. I ordered one approximately 5 weeks
          ago and was just informed it is on back order. I would like to read it for
          my assessment center date of July 14.
