You should accelerate very fast.

    Again, you should rejoice if it is so painful for you now. "Ouch"
    yours is the 2nd encouraging post in this thread.

    cheap if it is included with your zealous motivation to learn and bring out as much out from the book and raise your standards. Which photography course can provide you that motivation beside this ?

    Make a few more mistake like this - you sure will gain a mastery (on the subject) faster. *disclaimer*

    actually you are quite smart to be a dumbo at this time.
    imagine if you were a dumbo next year, you could potentially pay more because of the 7% gst. that time even if your ears big big also cannot cover the dumbo-ness...

    Poor Jeanie,

    dun take it too hard. Money can be earned back. I often make mistakes which I end up paying more also. Just relax and make full use of teh book lor. The $180 you have spend is to help you achieve greater & nicer pictures. Just take it as you have gone for a course and take it as an investment lor.

    No point crying over it when there's nothing you can do about it but to make full use of it.

    Stay smiling & enjoy your book.

    so b&w is 5cents, color is 80c.
    i THOUGHT(my biggest mistake) color pages less than 50, so it's ok.

    then came my biggest nightmare, they even printed those window print screen in COLOR!and comes to about 350 pages of color.
    total cost of the entire Ebook comes out to about $280!!i nearly fainted.

    in the end, i think they see me pitiful gal, gave me discount.
    but i still need to pay about $180 for the entire 700+ pages of GUIDE TO D200!!!!
    SIGH....
    now my heart ACHE like dunno what!

    so, this thread is for dumbo newbies like me....you have been 'warned'.


    (Luckily, you're rich enough to be able to afford this mistake.)
