Yes, they've already assigned an authorised publisher.
It's already out in market since July this year.

Hi DadOfGirl,

From what I know, there are 2 possibilities if the series is out of stock:

1)They have recalled all the copies if the 'O' levels are over. That means you may have to wait for the new batch, ie inclusive of 2009 papers to be published

OR

2)The series is really out of stock

Perhaps you can try going into www.popular.com.sg to find out. They have an online ordering service as well. That way, you may be able to purchase one and collect at the store nearest to you.

Hi DadOfGirl,

Update! Update!

Since I am idling away on the PC as DH is out bonding with DS, I called up the store at JP to enquire. Their reply is that Toa Payoh and UE has the most no of copies for 'E' Maths and Northpt and Toa Payoh for 'A" maths. But he cautioned me that the system may not be updated and that best to call the respective branches first. When I asked if it could be ordered online and whether the book could be delivered to the outlet nearest to where I live - affirmative. :celebrate:

Now that O levels are almost ending, it's normal that most places are not stocked up cos the publisher is waiting for 2009 papers before they republish the latest edition.

Publishers will usually take orders in schools, so circulating copies in bookstores are also quite limited. You can try your luck at larger standalone bookstores or call up the publisher directly.

Hi DadOfGirl,

'E' stands for elementary and 'A' stands for additional maths.

Pleeeeeease don't ask me what is the difference cuz I was and am hopeless in maths!!! :tongue:

I think you shd consider mrswongtuition's good suggestion as well, if all else fails. :D
