Can anyone suggest a good book for data structures and algorithms. I searched the boards and see that someone suggested a book by Deitel (I think?) Does anyone have any other suggestions? I prefer something straightforward but thorough. Thanks in advance.
I bought one of those Sam's "Teach yourself C++ in 24 hours", though note entirely comprehensive, it goes through 24 lessons outlining the key points of C++. It covers Structs, classes and other features quite well in plain English (good for people like me).
I think it was 24 bucks, and I use it quite a bit.

Algorithms in C++ by Robert Sedgewick.
It's a bit difficult at times if your new to things, but once you get the hang of it the book is invaluable.
I bought this book and its really help.
"Teach yourself C++ in 24 hours"
Thanks for the replies. I am taking data structures in the fall and thought I might get a head start on my reading. :)
