    More than an interview preparation book

    This books has everything required to clear coding interviews of any company. The problems of this textbook are of great quality , this is also followed by explanation and C++ code , so you don't have to refer the internet for answers.It stresses more on application of algorithms.This book is addictive if you like solving algo puzzles.

    It is advisable to buy this book atleast six months before your inteviews , so that you have enough time to do all the question.

    THE Book of Algorithm Problems

    I have bought and read all the books out there including :
    Cracking the Coding Interview
    Top 10 Coding Questions asked at Google
    Problems in Algorithms by Ian Parberry(free online)
    and believe me this one has more and better content than all of them especially the 1st and 2nd.
    Also It uses C++ to demonstrate solutions which is much better language than Java especially for this purposes due to simpler I/O, templates, shorter snippets and some more reasons. Cracking the Coding Interview uses J...

    A lot more than an interview book

    I use this as a fun puzzle book to keep my mind "in shape" and as practice exercises when learning a new language. It really is enjoyable to read up a problem and then think about it when going to bed or on the way to work. Highly recommended.

    The Programming Interview book you should own

    Till I bought this book I had no idea about the authors, but trust me once I started going through the chapters, I realized how well the book was organized. I have to be frank though, for a beginner it may take a while to understand the concepts, but for an experienced programmer this book will get you up to speed on the key problems that you will be asked in any interview and possible solutions for it. This is strictly not a design patterns book and I suggest you look elsewhere for it.This b...
