For one-semester Introductory courses or two-semester courses in data structures (CS-2) in the departments of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Business, and Management Information Systems.This highly anticipated innovative book by two of the leading CS-1/CS-2 authors focuses the design specification and implementation of ADTs. This book was created from the ground up with objects and Java in mind and shows students how to use and implement key data organizations. Its unique object oriented presentation divides the material into short bite size segments that are organized into small chapters. This makes learning easier for the student and allows for teaching more

Frank M. Carrano is a professor emeritus of computer science at the University of Rhode Island. He received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from Syracuse University in 1969. His interests include data structures, computer science education, social issues in computing, and numerical computation. Professor Carrano is particularly interested in the design and delivery of undergraduate courses in computer science. He has authored several well-known computer science textbooks for undergraduates. Walter Savitchreceived the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1969. Since that time he has been on the faculty at the University of California at San Diego and is currently a Professor of Computer Science and director of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Cognitive Science. Professor Savitch's research areas include complexity theory, formal language theory, computational linguistics, and the development of computer science education materials. In addition to writing numerous research articles and involvement in other editorial projects, he has written a number of well-known computer science textbooks, including Pascal, Ada, and C++ CS1 and CS2 more

Review quote

"Clear, clean presentation of the concepts. Very careful explanations for an often confusing topic." - Bob Holloway, University of Wisconsin"Technically, the writing is very Java savvy. It is very important that we exploit the neat Java features to improve code engineering. The text does that very nicely." - Bina Ramamurthy, SUNY Buffalo"Good class design is often elusive for students. I think that the way the authors emphasize class design with an eye toward future superclasses is an excellent approach." - Dennis Brylow, Purdue Universityshow more
