Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a quiz on Tuesday at chemistry, and I began reviewing for it. The subject is the Ideal Gas Law. I pretty much got the hang of it, except that I have one tiny problem. I'm kind of rusty on chemistry, and that's preventing me from getting a good grip. I've looked on Wikipedia, but it seems to only further my confusion (tried the manual, doesn't cover this topic). I can't exactly remember what a mole, atomic weight (or mass) is, and all that other stuff. The ideal gas law, in the forms that I've been taught, has either n (the number of moles, where I'm a little hazy) or m/miu (mass over molar mass, or something) at which point I'm completely lost. I don't know what molecular mass is, the difference between molecular and molar mass, and I don't know where to find either on a periodic table.

Also, if someone can provide a good printable periodic table with the required stuff on it (masses, where to find them, and everything) or perhaps a list with the elements and their masses, I would be grateful.

PS I may not even know what I don't know, that's how much I don't remember. So if it seems that what I'm asking isn't really related to the ideal gas law or applying it, please tell me so.

You are missing the most basic things you will ever need in chemistry. Mole (unit of amount of substance) and molar mass (mass of one mole of a substance) have a decent wikipedia articles explaining details - please start there.
