2nd level book, data structures, algorithms


I'm blazing my way through Stroustrup's new book. I already know most of it but I'm going to learn error checking, vectors, inheritance, and polymorphism.

Can anyone recommend what book to work through next? I'm already a master of the linked list and I'm pretty good with pointers.

I need to learn the binary tree, and I guess I should learn depth-first search algorithms or whatever they're called.

Man, forty bucks. It teaches binary tree and other data structures? Does it have homework problems to work through?

Yes, it does it all. Give it a try.It is the best book for beginners, most simple and explanatory, with lot of exercise after every sub-topic.

I recommend this book:

Introduction to algorithms

(T. Cormen)


I covers search algorithms, all kinds of datastructures and much more from a language independent point of view. Not very cheap where I live but very thorough.
