Its unique object oriented presentation divides the material into short bite size segments that are organized into small chapters. This makes learning easier for the student and allows for teaching flexibility.

Review:


"Clear, clean presentation of the concepts. Very careful explanations for an often confusing topic." — Bob Holloway, University of Wisconsin




"Technically, the writing is very Java savvy. It is very important that we exploit the neat Java features to improve code engineering. The text does that very nicely." — Bina Ramamurthy, SUNY Buffalo




"Good class design is often elusive for students. I think that the way the authors emphasize class design with an eye toward future superclasses is an excellent approach." — Dennis Brylow, Purdue University


From the Back Cover:

Written for an introductory course in data structures, typically known as CS-2, this book was designed and built from the ground up with Java and objects in mind. Frank Carrano and Walter Savitch provide instructors and students with a carefully crafted and class-tested approach for teaching ADTs and objects with Java. The book's unique design organizes material in short segments and relatively small chapters. This approach makes learning easier and allows for teaching flexibility. The book shows students how to organize their data by using a list, a dictionary, a stack, a queue, and so on. Using these data organizations, students will learn about related techniques for algorithm development.

FEATURES
  • Separates the specification and implementation of ADTs into individual, but consecutive, chapters.
  • Presents short, bite-sized segments that focus attention on one issue at a time.
