      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'

      The product is not released yet. You can however ‘book’ an order for this. Shipping happens only after the product launch.

      'Out of Stock'

      Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.


      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.

      'Temporarily Unavailable'

      '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.

    two thumbs up!!

    the book's great for beginners who're starting out with Java. i had done basic C, skipped the object oriented C and gone straight to Java (though i wouldn't recommend doing this to others) and this book still managed to keep the level of difficulty low enough for the concepts to be understood and the yet the powerfulness of the language to be grasped.

    much props to flipkart too. had the book in my hand in about 36 hours from placing the order in great condition and a price less than most b...

    Helps you dive in the ocean of JAVA, but after that you are on your own

    This book is perhaps the best read for beginners, given its crisp and detailed explanations of basic JAVA concepts.

    The book will help you a lot in diving the vast ocean of JAVA and will give a strong base over the language to help you in learning further. It is also the best textbook you can refer to, if you are having JAVA as a subject in your undergrad.

    But it has a limitation. This book is not at all good for learning advanced JAVA concepts, so don't expect that you can fight SCJP or s...

    A must for JAVA beginners !!

    This is all what you need to start your java journey.
    Otherwise if you are all new to any programming language
    then I would recommend "Head First Java" by Kathy Sierra,
    if you enjoy studying a subject interactively.

    To remind you this is just a reference book so there are no practice problems, so keep practicing on your own. Good luck !!

    Best book for Experienced programmers and beginners alike

    I'm an experienced C/C programmer. I find this book very useful. This book covers everything about Java from scratch. Newbies to programming and Java will have to read it in detail while experienced guys can skim through part 1 of this book.

    The Ultimate Java Guide!

    If you want to really LEARN the Java language right from the basics, this book is a must. The core concepts of Java have been simplified with suitable examples and the elaboration of every core concept has been put forward in a simple style.

    However this book doesn't really explain much the topics like swing,beans,jdbc etc although they have been introduced at appropriate places...

    But whatever,if you want to understand the CORE CONCEPTS that make Java the language it is ,this is THE book t...

    Best Java book for beginners

    This book is a must for those who wish to begin Java themselves. The author starts from scratch. The basic concepts are covered well before half of the book; the rest of the book explains the powerful Java libraries and many of the functionality of Java. Great book overall.
