2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for your first exposure to data structures, Dec 14 2000
This review is from: Data Structures and Algorithms in Java (Hardcover)
I just completed my first course in data structures using this text. I do not recommend it if you are trying to solidify the Java you learned in your first programming course. It's very sparse on details. I recommend Main's text instead.
On the other hand, I would look at this book AFTER you've completed your data structures course. I think you get the "big picture" of basic data structures. I would also recommend this book to anyone who is mathematically mature (ie comfortable with abstract thinking) and needs a quick overview of data structures.
To summarize, I wouldn't use this as a required text for a course. If your instructor uses this for a course, check it out from the library and buy a copy of Main's text instead.
