“CHAPTER SUMMARY: The following terms summarize all the concepts and ideas that were introduced in this chapter…They appear in boldface type in this chapter to draw your attention to them. The boldface type also makes it easier to look them up if you need to. You could also use the search or “Google” action on your computer to get a quick and expanded explanation of these terms, laws, and formulas.”—
Barron’s SAT Subject Test Chemistry Prep book (unknown edition…)
Help me out here, WHAT WAS THE FUCKING POINT OF THIS ENTIRE PARAGRAPH??!
Given that this is a SAT II book (got this as packets from class, I didn’t actually buy it) you’d think that whoever is reading this would understand the purpose of boldface type. Either that or they wouldn’t give a damn.
And no, I’m not going to use the “Google” action to get an expanded explanation of the terms because that’s what the book is supposed to be for!
