Geography Guide--help me understand

I have a question about the geography guide that I hope makes sense and isn't just because I've overlooked something obvious.

Re: Science Help Please!

I think you're considering beefing it up, but just in case - keep in mind that the publisher says they would give 2 credits, but the credits would be "Basic Chemistry" and "Basic Physics".

Re: New Math Recommendation: World Geography Guide

Thank you for answering the question about samples. No wonder I couldn't find any!
