UPDATED SEPTEMBER 2011: Except for Braille and large-type editions, high school science reference tables will no longer be supplied. Schools are required to use the online versions to print sufficient copies to supply one reference table for each student.

2011 Edition, has the same content as the 2010 edition, except that the ruler on the cover has been removed. Students will no longer need to use this ruler on the Regents Exam in Physical Setting/Earth Science.
