      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.


      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Worth your money!

    A very detailed explanation is provided for the C++ language. I personally have been coding in C/C++ for 3+ years but it's a good book to start for beginners as well. The topics are explained in detail and in simple user-friendly language. So if your looking to enhance your knowledge or simply want to get to know the C language, go for this book.

    Good book but not for beginners

    I agree its a good book by herbert but i don't think its for beginners. Thought the book cover all aspects on c++ but lacks questions for practice which i think is must learning any language, hence not recommended for beginners. So i m returning it. Rest product and packaging and delivery were at its best.

    I got an OLD and full of DUST book

    So, I ordered it and recieved my book within 2 days (thats nice)

    However I feel like I was ripped off, what they sent to me was an old copy which we called (second hand) and frankly I have no problem, but second hand books are way less priced than new ones.

    One of the best C++ reference book out there, period.

    Herbert Schildt has never done a sloppy job yet. His book "JAVA- A Complete reference" has been as huge a success as this book has become.
    The programming examples are aplenty, and explanation given is pretty good too. It really does cover all the aspects of the C++ Programming language.
    All in all, a very good book to start learning Object Oriented Programming in C++.

    As ever, Flipkart's service has been perfect. (Book delivered within 2 days)
    Bravo FlipKart, And Schildt too!
