Book Review: Data Structures and Algorithms with C++

November 13, 2005 at 10:43 AMAmer Gerzic

Programming is all about the data. Reading, writing, storing, and analyzing the data requires great deal of data structures included with many programming languages. The book Data Structures and Algorithms with Object-Oriented Design Patterns in C++ is only one of the books addressing data structures in C++. At first, the author writes about "big O" notation of algorithm analysis. Later chapters describe more practical topics like stacks, queues, lists, trees, hash tables, and maps. Finally, the author describes heaps, priority queues, sets, multisets, and graphs. Sorting and problem solving algorithms are described in their own chapters.

Generally, the book is a "must read" for every C++ developer. However, I wish the author focused more on practicality than theory.
