I think this is a pretty good value. There are a few very inexpensive scopes out there, and I'd be happy with this one. I have an Amscope that cost about the same, it's been a pretty good microscope for a few years now. I think this Omax scope is just as good or perhaps a little better.
As for how to do fecals, I wrote these articles for BYC earlier this year, and they are directly relevant to your questions. I hope you find them helpful. I am happy to answer any questions that come up while you're learning.
