      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.

      '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.

    Good but not the best

    I finished this book and end up being totally confused. Then I got a chance to finish the SCJP book by Kathy Sierra bates. Then I thought why the hell I wasted my time in reading this book by Khalid mughal.

    I strongly recommend the book by Kathy as that is the best book to master core java fundamentals. And that is read by most serious Java programmers as well

    Not for the faint-hearted and you get more Java per a Java Book!

    The purpose of the SJCP/OCPJP exam: The main purpose of this exam is for new and experienced Java programmers to gain knowledge of or to review 'the building blocks' of the Java programming language. The exam puts the experienced programmer to work on subtle aspects of the language, in a way, exposing tools that are very useful but have been forgotten or not been used for long, due to various reasons.

    The reason Khalid Mughal wrote this book: The author has attempted the impossible, to make ...

    This is a very good read for an intermediate level. The concepts are explained in depth and the tricky tests for each section ensures that you are clear about the concept. Need focused time to read each chapter. Revise it now and then and one can be super confident about Java.
