Amazon’s dedlivery estimate was Jul 7, 2004 – Jul 20, 2004! I love Amazon. Really. And as if the quick shipment is not enough, the breakdown of the price is as follows: $65.26 = 295.25 NIS. How much would i pay if i bought this stuff in Israel? CD costs 45 NIS in Jerusalem’s “Hatav Hashmini” and 501 Verbs costs 89 NIS at the Academon which leaves us with 161.25 NIS; I haven’t seen the DVD or the dictionary here, but DVD would cost at least 80 NIS and the dictionary at least 140 NIS, so i saved at least about 50 NIS.

Reviews of at least some of the above items to follow.
