    Good Data Structures Book

    I am looking for a good book on data structures. You see I am starting my masters in computer science soon and am not a computer major. I have an undergrad degree in chemistry. I have to take a course in algorithm concepts my first semester and the prereq to that course is knowledge of data structures. Because of my outstanding previous acedemics having a 3.76 GPA, the school I am attending has waived all prereq courses. Do not get me wrong I have some programming experience and understand OOP, Inheritence, Polymorphism,Collections, Threads, etc. I have just never had any exposure to data structures and similar algorithms. So to make the long story short I basically need a crash course (Good Book) on data structures before I attempt something at the Master level. Thanks in advance.

    First, I would recommend you the simple programming tutorials website, where you can find some information on DS. Do you need a more theoretic book or binded to some programming language?

    Do NOT try to do this using the Web. There is so much mis-leading and wrong information, as well as conflicting approachs.

    One good place to start for concepts on the UTILIZATION of data structures is "Design Patterns : Elements of Resusable Software".

    For more basic information "Algorithms, Data Structures, and Problem Solving With C++"

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; in practice there is.
