Jivan (Class Rep) was accompanied by Wilfred (Assistant Class Rep), Yueh Teng (treasurer) and Me (locals) in a mission to buy two Law Books :

- Medicines (Advertisement and Sale) Act 1956 & Regulations
- Dangerous Drug Act 1952 and Drug Dependents (Treatment and Rehabilitation) Act 1983
Wide varieties of book offered here.
Beside that, we also helped some of us who wanted to buy the British National Formulary (BNF), MIMS, Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine and Dipiro Handbook of Pharmacotherapy.
We also spotted some medical students buying the medical equipment such as the sphygmomanometer and reflex hammer.
Wa.. so many money. We were armed with thousand plus money to buy the books.
Tips: If you plan to buy in bulk, it is always better to make a call to them first and check with them before coming. If you were to look for parking, make a turn into the Pekeliling Flat (now demolished) nearby the market and park you car there. The bookstore is just walking distance from the market.
