      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.

      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.

      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.

    Not the best

    I have mostly all books but feel that Trueman's life science book for NET by Pramod singh is the best. Though upkar is not bad, bt theory is not properly covered nd moreover questioons for part II are not adequate. Diagrams lack clarity and previous year papers are not fully solved.

    Best book New Syllabus

    I bought this book recently from flipkart and I'm very satisfied with the product (book) as well as the service.
    This book is a recent one (published in 2012) and prepared based on the latest syllabus and new exam pattern (june 2011, it covers all the areas of the syllabus not only PART B&C but also PART A.
    The discount was very less (7%) for this book compared to any other CSIR life sciences book available in flipkart but still its worth for the money i paid...

    Average book

    Its average book for preparation. The theory portion is ok but MCQs are too simple and not up to the level of CSIR-JRF.

    Useless Book

    I bought this book from a shop, not through Flipkart. And it sucks. The theory portion is no way near adequate and the MCQ's provided at the end of chapters are most certainly a joke on even the most modest CSIR aspirant. They are so laughably inadequate that I'm surprised this book got even ONE positive review. Please do not waste your money-- its priced at Rs. 530 as on 23 August 2015-- and your time.

    I hate Pathfinder Academy's books (which are priced ~280 as of now) by Pranav Sharma but...

    Nice Book

    This book contains a lot of material for NET exam. But at some topics i felt like they have diverted from the main topics. Over all this book is a nice help for Net Life Science exam.

    One important suggestion i want to give here is that for NET Life Science coaching Pathfinder Academy, Munirka is the best.
