My first review. I just had to defend this awesome book.other reviews came from people who should study art history and work as analysts, actuaries, or web developers (the new car salesmen) instead of doing coding in high performance languages. if you wanna ride a 200+hp sport bike, learn how to drag knees instead of complaining about a stiff suspension.this book is not to teach you c++ but to teach you algorithms. you need to be fluent in c++. at least look at stl and boost programming techniques.reading this book is like learning from an old master who skips obvious details but says the important stuff and guides you quickly.now if you are the right person, this book makes you feel awesome. why? because it's the only book, where you can learn algorithms and data structures while learning all the nice C++11 details that you can live without. there are great books on algorithms (like the free vazirani's algorithms or elements of programming) and there are decent books about c++ (bjarne's pp). it's also pretty cool to see c++11 in the wild -- just going through the code is fun. so yeah, this book makes learning algo and ds for c++ really quick -- you can just code the examples.this book has basic and advance topics, has code and some comments. with help of wikipedia and stack overflow, you can fill in the details. what else do you need? it was the best way i found to learn how to write an stl-like container (book's List chapter for example).If not all the bad vibe from the wussies, i'd give the book 4 stars but i need to shift the average rating a bit, so I give it 5. the biggest downside is there are NO public SOLUTIONS !!!! the author should've given solution to at least some problems. There is no way I'd take 4 month course on this stuff; it can be learned in 3-4 weeks. (you can find leaked solutions for the 3rd edition though)
This is book is designed for a introduction to data structures and algorithm analysis but nothing more. The college that I attend uses only the basic containers (vectors and dynamic arrays) but requires the student to hard code linked lists and the more advanced data structures. This approach to programming, I believe, works best for most students (albeit a bit time consuming).As for understanding the algorithm analysis, most college require a more rigorous course to truly understand the changes to an algorithms running time. You're not a "wussie" if you find the book difficult to read (as previously mentioned by other reviewers) but you must read the book, take the best information that holistically fills your knowledge gap, and ignore the rest that doesn't make sense. Quite often, your professor can help fill in the gap. By the way, I'm not a genius (I have a hard earned 3.4 GPA). And like most things in life, the book has some high and low points.
Great book for DS beginnersHas lots of code to use for examples. No complaintsJust like any book their can be some confusing things but they explain well
excellent book! It explains in detail most of data structures that are included on it. I recommend it for beginners that want to introduce themselves into algorithms.
Great book, easy read. Too bad the professor has not read the book and reading it was actually harming test scores.
This is definitely a computer math book. It's not good for explaining data structures for real world applications but it's very good at explaining various number techniques. I do wish that the examples were more complete though.
Book teaches data structures fine.
Required book for cs.
