Does anyone have any recommendations for Data Structues in Java?
Especially for Object Oriented programming.

I have found two books so far,


Data Structures and Algorithms in Java
by Michael T. Goodrich, Roberto Tamassia


Object-Oriented Data Structures Using Java
by Nell B. Dale; Daniel T. Joyce; Chip Weems
--------------------------------------------------

Anyone else have any suggestions?
Anyone read these books?

THank you

Hi,

I have "Data Structures and Algorithms in Java" by Robert LaFore. I think it's pretty good but I just bought it recently so will have a better idea of how much I like it later...

Nell Dale wrote my intro programming C++ book and also the Data Structures in C++ book for a couple of classes I sat in on while working on a different degree, back in 1999 or 2000. Both were good books as I recall.

I got the following




Data Structures & Algorithms in Java (Mitchell Waite Signature Series)

Which was released in 98'. Is this the first edition? Are there a lot of
problems with it? Sure hope not, anyways only 5 bucks.

Hi Sean,

No, I don't think there are any problems with it and basic data structures are "classic" anyway, so how much do they change I think you got a great deal. I paid, I think, $50.00 for mine. I'd rather have found your edition and saved the $45....

is a good introductory book to the subject,
very worth reading.

Does anyone know where I can find the errata pages for "Data Structures and Algorithms in Java 2nd Edition" by Robert Lafore. I've searched all over the web for it and can not find it.

Any help would be appreciated.
