"Simple words that can be easily understood by a novice. Explains most of the key concepts with diagrammatic illustrations. A Great Starter For Beginners."
Reviewed By: Joseph H. R. Isaac


This book has the basics needed for anyone to learn Data Structures. It contains Lists, Stacks, Queues, Trees, and the other nesessary data types. Language used is simple and easy to understand. I used this book for any form of reference needed for my research. The examples used in this book are good. The programs are a bit confusing for beginners but a novice programmer can pick it up well. If you leave the codes and read the theory, it's just fine. It shows the pros and cons of all the data types so a person can use them accordingly in any application they need. The minus point in this book is the fact that the sections are sometimes very small and the details are left out. For example the linked lists have circular linked lists and the doubly linked lists but they are not explained in detail and are just shown in the book.

A summary will be as follows:

Pros:

  1. Simple to understand.
  2. Great Starter.
  3. Good examples shown.

Cons:

  1. Sometimes too simple at places.
  2. Somes sections lack details.

Overall Comments:

Simple words that can be easily understood by a novice. Explains most of the key concepts with diagrammatic illustrations. A Great Starter For Beginners.
