      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.

      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:

      • 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.

    As usual great service from flipkart . Kudos to them .

    Pathetic Book - Full of Errors

    I bought this book keeping in mind the Reputation of Mr. Arun Sharma. But this book has errors spilled all over its questions as well as solutions. Its completely a waste of time for a persn who is trying to seriously utilize his time for preparation. It forced me to write this review months after buying this book .never ever ever buy it.

    A Good Book

    It is a good book for competitive exams. The thinking pattern analysis is good. I can't find it in any other book.

    But I have some doubts about the solutions of syllogism. It seen some what different from the reasoning books of Banking Service chronicle. Analatical reasoning method is better than Venn Diagram method.

    An "OK" book

    The book is ok for a LITTLE practice on lr.
    No need to buy if you have the previous DI LR book by the same author or buy the combined older DI LR book and save some money, as it would suffice for both DI & LR..
    Finally, not so good..not worth the money (or any money..give it for free)
