Check out the SDN Booty Store Black Friday Sale!

The SDN Admissions Guide is the best price I've ever seen it. Since shipping is included, it's like getting it for $10 plus shipping, instead of the regular $29.99 plus $5 shipping charge. I know there are a limited amount of them in stock. It will be first come, first served. This book is like having the best of SDN, plus more, at your fingertips.

The tee-shirts are high quality, and a great price. I got the Witch Doctor one, and my sister snatched it the day it arrived. So, I got a Be the Doctor Your Daddy Wanted You to Marry one, which is cut for ladies. I THOUGHT that I'd be able to get mine back. Nope. She's kept them both, wears them frequently, and gets smiles and comments wherever she goes. It's a good thing that I like my sister. :)

Get them for yourself, or drag someone who cares to the computer and have them order your SDN cool stuff for a gift.

I hope these help you. The contents are far too comprehensive for me to describe them all, even with the book here on my lap. It's like having the best advice from SDN about all of the most important questions, right at your fingertips. :) That's the best description I can think of.

Here is a link to Amazon.com's reader for the index.

Here is a copy of the description that we had up during this summer's Test Prep Week:

That is just awesome. I don't need something like that anymore, but I'd be definitely hitting up some of that booty a year ago. Hmm, interesting choice of words...
