-The authors clearly have a thorough understanding of their field and jump right into the syntax and overview of the java language to prepare you for further learning down the road.
-The book is descriptive.
-Lots of practice problems.
-Less dry than it could have been.
-Typical textbook minus nice visuals. Occasionally a visual is there if needed, but overall the book describes each piece. Would have been better with more visuals to articulate ideas.
-Some of the practice problems don't align with the learning objectives for the chapter.
-Price is pretty steep.
Should you buy it?
For a class, yes. If you're looking to familiarize yourself with data structures - possibly, hence the 3 stars. But I would continue the search and include this book for sure only if you're buying a few more. But with the cost of this book, I doubt that's what others would be doing.
The definitions are just so confusing and sometimes contradictory. What is an external node?????????????????????????????Can you tell me that???
All the notations and variable names are being thrown around arbitrarily. His code is just not for human to read. How much time have I wasted just to figure out what is a,b,c,d,u,v,w,m??? Absolutely horrible book.
