Algorithms and data structures

I am looking to strengthen my knowledge and skill in core algorithms and data structures. I searched for some forum dedicated to this but there are many options. Can anyone recommend a site/forum where there is active discussion on this topic. Does Java ranch forum has any forum dedicated to this ?

To the original poster : which language are you going to use to implement your DS and Algos ? Also, are you new to these subjects ?

I am also looking for the same thing. My score in collections section of SCJP was low, so I want to improve my knowledge of algos and DS (especially this).
I heard that "cormen" is good for algos...any other books ?
Which book is good for DS using java ?

SCJP 6. Learning more now.

Language is not a concern. Even a pseudo code can work. Java and C are 2 languages I am comfortable with.

I am not looking from certification standpoint. The main idea is to get good hands-on on solving problems on data structures and algorithms. I have found a good site if one wants good collection of problems.

@original poster: Project Euler is also a good and also has basic level of math related algorithms.
I agree. Here's the link:
