    Data Structures

    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.
    MS VC++ 6.0

    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.

    Thanks for the replies. I am taking data structures in the fall and thought I might get a head start on my reading.

    Go here for reviews of books related to programming. Then find the "data structures" and "algorithms" links and go into those two. Then seach through all the books listed there and pay attention to the ones that have Highly Recommended or Recommended by them. Click on the links for the individual books to read a short review on them
