      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?

      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?

      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.

    The is by far the most amazing book that I have found on computer organization. If you are a starter then this is the book to buy. If you want to go into depth then try Computer Systems by David R.O'Hallaron.

    Excellent Book.

    Explains Computer Architecture in an excellent manner.
    Properly explains how things happen in real world. Every digital module starts with a basic design and then design in modified after explaining how can we improve it. Same approach if Followed throughout the book.First you understand what are the basic functions then you workout a basic design then you keep modifying and improving the same design as you learn new concepts.

    Best book ever for understanding computer organization to the core

    The way in which the content is presented , practical and numerical scenarios for the given theory , never lets you put this book down . I have stallings and zaky too , but this one is awesome as you actually get to understand by way of diagrams on how it actually happens inside the processor.

    All computer engineering student must possess this book.

    and of course hats off to Flipkart for providing it at cheaper rates than the local book stores.!!
