normal. cos in sec1 and sec2, every single subject is studied. no forgetting the scientific calculater. but $371 is indeed abit on the slightly high side.

not sure. i comparing different sec schools booklist now, so it doesn't have those non-standardized things. another thing that adds quite heftily into the bill is the electronic chinese dictionary. does the 371 includes that? 371 really quite high. possible if you show us the booklist? thanks!
