This exciting new data structures book provides students with powerful procedural programming skills that will serve as a solid foundation for later object-oriented programming. Throughout the book, Eric Roberts takes a library-based approach to the concepts, which allows readers to see more advanced programs early on. This innovative use of libraries will motivate students as they begin tackling more advanced data structures topics. In the first section of the book, Roberts brings readers up-to-speed on libraries and also provides a nice review of C. Eric Roberts is famous for his wonderful writing style, his use of real-world examples, and his special "bug features."
