Others sources
1) Kinokuniya - Has a surprisingly large collection of "real" medical books (look near the fossil section).
     Prices vary widely, so do compare around, but if you're willing to wait for a "20% off" weekend... :-)
2) Borders - Smaller collection, and targetted more at the laymen.
3) Seniors - Best! Cheap, tested, and may even come annotated! They won't offer, so you have to ask.
     Tip: Try the MO(S) or Registrars who just passed exams.
4) Online websites (Amazon, etc) - In my personal experience, so-so.
     Pros: Can get any book in the world. Shipping may be cheaper if ordering in bulk.
     Cons: Can't get cheap "International" or "Asian" Editions. Postage usually kills you. Can take forever to come.
     Alternative if you can't find a book here: Get the co-op/yun nan/PG/RBA to bring it in for you.


Personal notes :
  1) ResearchBooksAsia: Doctors and nurses enjoy a 8% discount.
  2) NUS Co-op: Usually the cheapest of the lot, and members get a 5% discount.
  3) ResearchBooksAsia: The outlet at SGH has closed.

The above information has been provided by other sources, and may be outdated, inaccurate or maybe even plain wrong.
In other words, check the opening hours and store locations before you go down, and don't chase me for a refund if you don't get your discount...
Declaration of interest: I am a co-op member (but my dividends are donated ;-) I have no affiliation with the rest of the stores.
