    Did you take IB Biology? I did and all the tests were like this. The final HL Biology exam was a bitch! I didn't do badly, but I didn't do as well as I thought I would.

    As for the OP questions, short answer are my forte. So are the math/problem solving ones. They're also the two I find most interesting/fun/whathaveyou.

    You poor soul...

    I couldn't do IB science, because I couldn't get through the IB math class...but then again, not many people did.

    It depends. I always liked multi-choice on math tests because I suck huge donkey balls at math, so when I'd have to figure out the problem myself, there is so much I can get wrong. At least with multiple choice, if all else fails, I can choose the one that looks right to me. But I know that's obviously not the best way to test that.

    But I HATE multiple choice in lit classes or any other class really, where things are so much more open to interpretation. It seems like by just having a multiple choice test in that class, it's missing the point. I don't think that "facts from the story/poem/whatever" are most important, and that's all you can really test with that sort of format. That, or some agreed-upon interpretation that I almost never actually agree with. So, essays are best for me most of the time.

    I like the short open response format for science tests combined with my lab report grades, which is how most of my teachers did it when I was in school. They'd give a bunch of hypotheticals too, where you'd have to give reasons for why X would happen and Y wouldn't, etc. I really liked those.

    My high school didn't offer the IB program until after I graduated; my first and second year university biology classes had all the killer multiple choice.
