Hi,


I am willing to revise and enhance my knowledge on Data Structures and Algorithms in Java and so what is the best book relevant to my concern.


Thanks.

I liked Introduction to Algorithms a lot. It uses pseudo code for its examples, which I think makes more sense than using any specific language.

The book that Ulf mentions is a famous and classic book which is used on universities all over the world. I have it too (although an older version), which I got in my first year in university.

Just remembered that Niklaus Wirth's classic text "Algorithms and Data Structures" is available for free these days; see http://faq.javaranch.com/java/HereYouWillFindLinksToFreeStuff for a link.
