I'm currently going through material in Java following the syllabi for some intro classes at the University I'm going to be transferring to next year so that I can test out of them. I'm almost done with the very basic/intro stuff and am almost ready to move onto this. I currently have this Data Structures and Algorithms book:Data Structures and Algorithms in Java which is used for their class.

I'm looking for something a little more user friendly for quick learning. Any recommendations?

Thanks.

Not sure about "user-friendliness", but the gold standard (and a high-end book) is Cormen/Leiserson/Rivest Introduction to Algorithms.

As mentioned previously by someone else I too would recommend Data Structures and Algorithms in Java by Robert Lafore. Thats the book I used when starting in Java at University.
