9 mill seems a bit excessive for a skill that only gives 2% more (drone) mining yield per level.

I think at the moment it only works for the newer drones (Excavators ect) so its a bit pointless for a new miner. CCP have said that it will work 1 day so its not a total loss and 9 mil is not that much, at lvl4 you would only have to mine 112.5mil isk of Ore to make that back (hard to do in a Venture but pretty easy in anything larger).

Also wait until you see the cost of the more advanced skill books. Several are in the 1 Bil range and 100-200mil is not uncommon for Capital related stuff.

Trust me, when skilling up for a Rorqual, the ISK9m for Mining Drone Specialisation was but a mere drop in the bucket after spending ISK400,000,000 on the Capital Ships skillbook and another ISK500,000,000 on Capital Industrial Ships skillbook.

Why the hell did you feel the need to both post here and in GD? I'll just post the same response as I did there.

Highsec miner detected. Maybe you should consider doing something else for ISK.
