Must have.

Every computer science student ought to have this book. It is an excellent book with clear and vivid explanations. Every topic has been covered in detail and has been explained in a very simple manner.

But it is not a book for a quick study though. For that you must refer to this book's slides on the Wiley site which states everything in brief and is a life saver during exams.

Just make sure you go for the right edition as certain new editions have omitted some topics.

Reliable book, Cheapest here: Investment with big returns

Just began with Into part, so review is totally on initial impressions and not so books savvy yours truly.
The Language or flow is Simple, Texts have ample conveying knowledge, low or less mess.

Here i got it cheapest, Rs. 357+ 10% offer on orders above 799 ( Books Pooling saved me more)
In open market it was between Rs. 400-480.

Just that Flipkart took a little extra time to deliver, though its fine.
