Found this among all the fine print in my teacher's-manual-that-is-not-my-teacher's-manual-because-I-got-the-textbooks-with-the-wrong-publisher:
"* Pre-AP is a registered trademark of the College Entrance Examination Board, which was not involved in the production of and does not endorse this product."
Whoa. I did not realize AP was a registered trademark. I did not realize there was such a thing as "Pre-AP." Learning new things every day.
I wonder how one gets a job with the College Entrance the Examination Board? Because I smell big money there, and also in the curriculum development department of any textbook publisher.
