Essential algorithms and data structures (Second edition)
The aim of this book is to provide students and teachers of AS & A level Computer Science with a comprehensive guide to the algorithms and data structures students need to understand for examinations. Each chapter presents:
- a data structure or algorithm, explaining how it works
- real-world applications of the algorithm
- a step-by-step example
- actual code in Python
- Fully coded solutions to download in Python 3, Visual Basic and C#.
- a description of the space and time complexity.
We have chosen to provide coded solutions in Python 3 because it is the most popular language taught at GCSE, Visual Basic Console (2015 onwards) because it is a language that most closely resembles the pseudocode and coded examples students will need to work with in examinations, and in C# as it is a highly recognised industry standard language.
This book is also available as a printed copy from amazon:
