    Bought "Photoshop CS2 by Scott Kelby" just last week at Popular Bookshop in Bras Basah. Price tag was $60.90. Had to produce the popular card for a 10% discount. Final price was $54.81.

    Saw the same book in Funan Centre off the shelf $54.00. Probably would be the same price if I were to order it in from the US.

    OT - A very good read. Highly recommended for someone like myself who wants to dive straight into the world of DI.

    Use Vpost USA and put the books you like into a wish list. Occasionally they have some specail discount and you pay less.

    Cons:-
    Have to wait for shippment.

    Buying local:- faster and popular books that they bring in bulk are cheaper. Photoshop CS2 was on offer recently below $60 I think. why? cos PS3 might be coming out soon so clear stock.
