I'm on my school's QuizBowl team, two years in a row, captain starting this year. My coach/teacher/whatever says he wants me to main Science and wants me to be a generalist for the Middle School team. I'm also "on" (read as: fill in for people) the B team for the high school. I'm getting to go to both Nationals, both Middle School in Atlanta and Small School in Chicago area. I just can't study is the problem. I've let a lot of Science go dead and miss out on a lot of bonuses. Mainly physics and chemistry. What would be the best way to study for this and fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

If you haven't taken a physics class before, there's a lovely book called Conceptual Physics by Paul Hewitt that's a nice introduction (and a library near you should have some edition of it)

AP review books and old packets at regular high school difficulty are good places to start at your level.
