Do you think there is anything we missed?

Jacob and I  tried our level best to cover  all important aspects of life in Finland.

Here is the Contents list of our latest eBook, "Handbook For Survival in Finland".

We have latest links to most of the relevant sites as Universities, Applied Science Universities, hsl.fi, vr.fi, Koskilinjat Oy, Finnair, Magistrates Office, Tax Office, KELA, etc., etc.

And we also have our own interprettions!! :-)

We have the guidelines of prices you should be paying for your foodstuffs!

Is there anything we missed as we can put it as Anexure! Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Criticism welcome as we want this to be the only independent reference book you need when coming to or living in Finland as a  student, out-sourced engineer or even a tourist.
