      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.

      '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.

      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.

    This is an amazing book...much better than last 8th edition..& delivered too fast!!

    Let's first talk about the book. It is an amazing book for beginners who want to understand or have the knowledge of computer architecture and organisation from the root level. The study would even be better if you have the basic knowledge of logical devices like logic gates, registers and other basic semiconductor devices which you can get through the study of digital design of computers. After the study of this book you can have the idea of how computer is organised and what is behind all t...

    The book is great. I had read older edition some 12 years back and now happy to own the latest!

    Delivery by Flipkart was as usual quick (within 2 working days) and with good packaging. The discount offered by W S Retail was also good compared to other sites and sellers.

    For readers, there are some critical typos in the book and I suggest you search for "William Stallings errata" (without quotes) to get the same from the page maintained by author himself. Otherwise the book is best and a mu...
