    I bought the original "Nursing Made Insanely Easy" from there...they also have local reprint which is 50% of the price, on newsprint paper.

    I think I saw "Pharmacology Made Insanely Easy" there.

    C & E is beside UE Recto.

    Hi Lawrence

    Yes it is. I also bought the NCLEX book off Amazon a long time before the incredibly easy book came out

    Please be very, very aware that any of those copies that are reprinted there are illegal to be brought into the US. It is violation of US copyright laws and will be immediatley taken away.

    They are what we call "bootleg" copies here.

    the P1,200 copy is the US-released version, with the CD. I found the Saunders CDs much better though.

    the P600(?) copy on newsprint is the bootleg one--it doesn't come with the CD.

    I think the local re-prints are still legal. It is esp. made for the Philippines and can only be sold in the Philippines under the permission of the publisher. It also comes w/ the CD if you buy it from C & E publishing but you will have to ask for the CD as well. The CD is also re-copied w/ permission.

    The only diff. from the orig. is that it is made from newsprint only while the orig. or imported one is printed on quality acid-free paper and is colored.

    I think the bootleg or pirated copies Suzanne is talking about are the ones that were just photocopied and book-bound locally and sold in front of PRC.

    are reprints safe to bring along when going to another country? i might be going to singapore next month and im planning to bring along with me my Saunders book with the cd...bought them in C&E a couple of weeks back...i really wanted the imported version but opted to save the extra cash so i bought the newprint copy instead... its a legal copy for sure since its from C&E but can i take it out of manila?

    have you tried all of C&E's branches? i havent really seen an original version of the nursing made insanely easy book, just a photocopied version from the "manangs" upfront of PRC...but with the Pharma book, i think i saw it in at least two national bookstores, one in recto and one in sm north edsa.
