      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.

      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.

    never a book for beginners

    The book might be good for experienced C programmer especially for the purpose of cracking objective questions. It really helps refining the basic details of C language e.g. operator precedence etc. . However, the newbies might never want it to have it as his/her first book. For the first reading the following book is advised :
    This is very standard book and written by DENNI...

    avoid at all cost, even if your college prescribes it!

    I don't understand why this book is so hugely popular! Its highly harmful if you want to sustain a career in IT.
    This is a typical example of how you should never write code.
    It teaches bad programming style...doesn't care about standards and is full of toy examples that do no good when you sit for serious coding.
    My suggestion (and also suggested by many reputed coders): go for a book called "C programming - a modern approach" by K. N. King (2nd ed.) and when you have grasped the basics and...

    This book will ruin your understanding, not recommended at all

    This book is followed by most of the engineering students (specially big hit in non-premier colleges) in our country. The reasons may be many: written by an IITian, having lots of code samples (most even dont compile on various compilers) etc etc. But I have found this book really a joke!!

    Author (and may be your seniors too) may try to convince you that there is nothing beyond this book in this ocean of C but trust me, this book will ruin your career. You will realize that when you will com...

    At first glance it appears to be a standard book. However, if read feels like bullshit. This book in particular is out-dated, overly simplistic, and not as comprehensive as other books.

    This is the book that advocates learning with Turbo C. A 24 year old compiler.

    "In my opinion, even today there isn't any learning environment that can beat Turbo C/C++ for simplicity."

    In preface to it I would love to say that:

    This is profoundly, inexcusably, and perhaps criminally, wrong. People w...

    Boon for beginners

    An upto date product by Flip kart.
    Personally I found the book quite helpful.From c basics to decision control and further to functions and pointers, the theory is thoroughly explained.
    The book comes with a plethora of examples therefore making it very easy to understand for beginners.
    And as always delivery by flip-kart is quick.

    Melody of Love & Wonder

    I started my programming career with BASIC and after learning about 10 programming languages I still remember the wonder of those days while I was reading 'Let Us C'. I loved it and got a deep realization of how to write a good book. No matter which technology you use or which coding style you follow, there is always something beyond it and that is the ability of writing a captivating textbook.
    I completed this book like a Dan Brown thriller and jumped to another Kanetkar book. I don't think ...

    If u know what is i++; then don't buy this book!

    I read this book in my first year of B.Tech; and since then developed a repulsion for this. It may teach you basic concepts in C; but do not expect to understand complex topics like pointers.
    The best book for C is "ANSI C Programming Language" by Late Sir Dennis Ritchie (he created it!).

    I have bought it recently, packing is good and it is delivered in 2 days. Coming to the book the price is reasonable,but the book is not for beginners. If u r learning the programming language for first time,it doesn't suits u.so better go for Balagurswamy it's the book for absolute beginners.
