Students using the electronic version of the Science Resource Guide will have access to all full-color figures. Students using the black and white print version of the Science Resource Guide can download full-color versions of all figures that require color here.

In the Science Resource Guide, there is contradictory information on which printer was the first commercial laser printer. Either printer may be considered the first, depending on the source and on how the different features of each printer are viewed and how one defines “commercially available.” Although IBM technically beat Xerox to the market with the 3800, their model was designed as a peripheral to replace existing printers in data centers, whereas the Xerox 9700 was a stand-alone device not intended for a specific application. Given that there is not a consensus on which printer was the first commercial laser printer, there will be no competition test items on this specific topic.
