      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.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      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.

    Utterly Disappointed

    Pathetic quality of product. Seems as if it were second hand with tick marks against some topics in the index. Second-hand product delivered for price of 1st hand. THIRD RATE products delivered by flipkart. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!!

    Best book on this subject!

    This book is definitely worth the keep for in-deep study of the subject..
    -Covers most of the topic of computation.
    -Very descriptive

    -It is sometimes a little hard to understand at the first go.

    I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.

    If you are a person, who is looking for answers to questions such as:
    -How your PC/Mac works at the hardware level.
    -Why Mac's outdo PC's.
    -What is the difference between ARM and intel.
    Then this book is for you.

    But, if you are one of those who wanto simply clear their exams, and are looking for answers that can fit into your brain, look elsewhere.
