Book Overview

Gilberg and Forouzan's language-independent data structures text enables students to first design algorithms using Pseudocode, and then build them using the C programming language. Written at a level that makes it easy for students to understand, the book de-emphasizes mathematical rigor and provides a practical approach to data structures.

One fo the Best Book to understand Data Structure

This is a great book if you are taking either a data Structure class or you have trouble understanding Data Structures. Pros : The author has taken an entirely different approach to explain various data Structures . First the concept is explained through very clear explanation and diagrams wherever required . Then the author presents the code in pseudo code (which is not the actual code) . The pseudo code gives you the base to write the code on your own . If you have clearly understood the concept you will be able to able to build your own code. Cons: This book has not been revised . It was written couple of years ago. The code i.e. ADT for every data Structure seems to be written in old fashion way . I definately recommend this book to everyone . For the code part just use any of the book assigned by your instructor and if you are ambitious you should have no trouble building your own codes from the pseudocode. Dont listen to the negative comments . If you are really in to computer science you will love this book .

Great book!!! You'll learn a lot from it!

This book is great and I don't know why so many people rated it negatively. I don't know if it's the best in data struct books because I haven't read all of them, but it's surely one of the top ones. Text is clearly written, very understanding step-by-step explanations accompanied with illustrations, diagrams, graphs, and charts. You don't need an instructor with this book, in fact, this is how I'm learning data struct now--on my own! Projects and excersises are very interesting and relevant to material studied in the chapter. I strongly recommend this book! :)

Excellent!

I know how to program in Java and I have basic knowledge of C/C++.I need to get up to speed on data structures and algorithms w/ogoing through mathematical "reasons" why a certain data structure andalgorithm is more efficient than another. I needed to know the whats and hows.This book gave me exactly that.I was able to convert the book's pseudocode into C code withoutpeeking at the author's actual implementation. This is how easy thebook is to understand (given you know what pointers and dynamic memoryallocation are and how to use them).I'm not sure what the other readers are complaining about. This isn'ta book about software engineering (and the author implicitly impliedit each time he said such topics are outside the scope of the book).Another reader wanted more examples. There are times when I want hand-holding myself but only in specific topics such as game programming.This is a book on data structures and algorithms not data structuresand algorithms used in encryption, compression, file management, etc.By the way, I'm referring to the previous edition (in C).

truly best

I've taken a data structure course with this book long time ago. However(like all other Gilberg, Forouzan books), the book remains one of my favorites, combining concepts, graphics, and algorithms in the most efficient and helpful manner you are unlikely to find anywhere else.Now regarding somewhat negative comments made by previous posters as I have to disagree with them to say the least. The purpose of the book(and the subject in general), is not to teach you a certain programming language, although you might enhance your knowledge in the process. It is to teach you concepts of data organization and manipulation theory that can be implemented in C, C++, Java and so on.

Very well written Data Structures text!

This is an incredibly rich Data Structure text presented in a easy to read and straightforward manner. The text layout is appealing to the eye with lots of supporting pictures, diagrams, tables, Pseudocode algorithms, and program code. The Pseudocode is general for any language yet closely relates to C. The program code is in C. The Pseudo code logic covers all data structures very well. ~J Franzmeier
