Overview

Data Structures and Other Objects Using C++ takes a gentle approach to the data structures course in C++. Providing an early, self-contained review of object-oriented programming and C++, this text gives students a firm grasp of key concepts and allows those experienced in another language to adjust easily. Flexible by design, professors have the option of emphasizing object-oriented programming, covering recursion and sorting early, or accelerating the pace of the course. Finally, a solid foundation in building and using abstract data types is also provided, along with an assortment of advanced topics such as B-trees for project building and graphs.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This iteration prompted by the 1998 ANSI/ISO C++ Standard emphasizes the specification, design, implementation, and use of data types as typically covered in a second semester computer science course. Since coverage of C++ begins from scratch, students programming in C may still utilize the material on such topics as the phases of software development, queues, recursive thinking, trees, and graphs. Includes self-test exercises with an answer key, advanced projects, substantial appended material (e.g. dealing with older compilers), and Web support. No date appears for the first edition. Main teaches computer science at the U. of Colorado-Boulder. Savitch is in computer science and engineering at the U. of California, San Diego. Annotation c.

    The worst book around

    I really don't know whom this book was written for. It's not for beginners because it used a lot of advanced staff, but not for advanced because it explains in the beginners level. The book is boring...The complicated things aren't explained, but easy things explained 2 or 3 times same thing. Horrible book.
