The AP US History "Packet"

Did you use "The Packet" in your AP US History course in high school? Do you remember what that was called, who wrote it, and how I could get it again?

10 years ago when I was a junior in high school, we had a regular course textbook, and then an optional (we had to pay some nominal fee for it) distilled 150 page "packet" of bullet point information of all US history. I didn't realize it at the time, but this packet was absolutely brilliant. And I want to get it back.
The teacher has since retired, and I'd rather not go tracking him down, so I thought I'd give AskMeFi a shot:
It was about 150 2x sided pages, and looked like something someone printed out on their dot matrix printer in the early 90s. Incredibly pithy and concise, sometimes used full sentences, sometimes did not. Lots and lots of numbered lists and bullet points though.
Does anyone recognize it? Does anyone have it, or information on it?
I'd LOVE to get this thing back.
