Kamal Bookstores

 
Kamal Bookstore
Kamal Bookstores is famous for wide varieties of  medical textbooks that you will never get that complete at any other places even big bookstore like Kinokuniya. The books sold here are also cheaper as they get the government contract.  In fact, there are only 2 bookstores that offer complete variety medical textbooks in whole Malaysia. They are:

1) Kamal Bookstore
2) Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya (PPUM)

Many lecturers will advice medical, nursing or pharmaceutical students to these 2 places to buy textbooks and medical instruments. I would recommend you to Kamal Bookstore because you can reach there easily by public transport. For PPUM, you have no choice to drive yourself to get there. Moreover, there are a lot of legacy medical books are ONLY available in Kamal Bookstore.
