Data Structures and Problem Solving Using Java teaches data structures and algorithms from the perspective of abstract thinking and problem solving. In this text, experienced author and educator Mark Allen Weiss takes a unique approach by clearly separating the specification and implementation of data structures. Dr. Weiss presents the interface and running time of data structures in Part II of the book. Then, he provides the opportunity for students to use the data structures in a variety of practical examples before introducing the implementations in Part IV. By first gaining a familiarity with the interfaces and uses of data structures, readers will be able to think more abstractly about the subject matter.

    A great book

    This book strikes an excellent balance between theory and practice in a subject which can get complex very easily. The first book I attempted to read on this subject was the 'art of computer programming' of Don Knuth but it was too intimidating. Then i went to Algorithm with Java of Bob sedgewick and though it was excellent, the author did not worry about the specific java details. Finally, I get this book and I could understand very well the theoretical aspects of the subject as well as several practical implementation in java which help to clarify many subtleties involved in the algorithms I strongly recommend this book to people that are practical oriented but at the same time want adquire a firm grasp of the subject

    Very Confusing for most people.

    This book is very confusing for an average user. The codes are not easy to follow. He tends to make the code look more like industry codes, rather than codes for users and students to easily understand. Other than that , this book is very good if you are a serious java programmer. This book is not good for CSC Students though.

    Outstanding Data Structures/Java book

    Very good book for serious students, detailed description of Data Structures. Elaborates on Java language structure and allows for a very clear, consise understanding of Java and Data Structures.

    Don't waste your money.

    Extremely confusing and poorly organized book. Vague explanations are unacceptable for the CS course textbook. Probably the worst book on the subject.

    A beautiful Job

    This book has one of the most decent treatment of the theory behind recursion that I have ever seen. It gives a solid and clear idea of how algorithms are assembled. and allows us to fully appreciate the advantages of the object oriented languages this book is excellent for serious students who are concerned with a general way of logical thinking that enable them to extrapolate easily to any enviroment or language.
