Students of Organic Chemistry are not hard-pressed to find a general text to support their learning during the first years at University.

Yes, I'm aware that everything so far has come from the small mountain of chemistry textbooks on my desk. It's not my fault I have dull reading material :bored:

Forgive me if this has already been brought up, but what if the page starts in the middle of a sentence? Do you count that as the first sentence, or do you start with the first complete sentence?

I count full stops/question marks/exclamation marks as the end of a sentence. Partial sentences at the beginning of the page count as the first one; and if that is the one that is called for, I'd drag the words in from the previous page, but I don't know what others do.
