Good Math is required - Should be patient - Very detail description

I read 1st part of the book (as a beginner who knew almost (not totally) about algorithms). Here is what I felt

* Great description of algorithms and analysis.

* You will love the pseudo code

* Good math skills are needed. Certain algorithms are just thrown at readers as exercises - Don't skip them

* For self learners: Should take a year to complete (approx, might take more). You got to be patient to cover all areas - especially exercises.

* As a text book? : Yeah! Follow your class le...

excellent book but not recommended for self learners.

this book is amazing specially for computer science grads who wants to level UP their knowledge and skills in programming and other stuff, but then...nothing great comes easy. you will often find yourself struggling in understanding even the basic concepts, forget about concepts, even some terms are not described properly (the book is written by MIT lecturers for post grads so.. you know what i mean right?)
All in all buy this book only if you-
1) have a great teacher at your college who can ...

Cannot be better

I would not mention any thing about the product coz everyone knows this is a world famous publication and is taught worldwide. Only suggestion to user is to read this book in parallel with the video lectures on MIT website ( these are free lectures) This is gonna be a deadly combination :) this book will be a lot easier to learn with those video lecture .

Thanks to flipkart for the timely delivery :)

Liked it.

This is a great book for algorithms. I count on this book for all my algorithm requirements. I was just wondering, if this book is an introduction then what the complete algorithm book would be. :D

The exercises given in the book are quite important for some algorithms are covered through exercises. The pseudo-code used in the book is very easy to understand. Even if one is new to programming one can understand the code (the pseudo-code is not language specific), but prior programming experi...

Excellent book

This is a complete book (for undergraduate level), like a bible for algorithms. With page number running into four digits, it's a very detailed and descriptive book, which makes it an excellent learning resource for beginners.

A good grip of mathematics will be of great help. However, most of what is required is put into the Appendix, so you won't have to go hunting for a piece of maths.

This is a great book, which is further solidified by the fact that it is used as a textbook for MIT (Mas...

Excellent books

This is an excellent book for CS/IT engineering students seeking to have very strong base in Algorithm analysis and design . However, you must also pay equal attention to practical aspect as mere learning and analyzing on paper won't help in the longer run. So, either learn C++ or Java first. I would recommend learning C++ as one can learn coding in C++ in short time.
Therefore also buy The C Programming Language (Ansi C Version)

Step well taken in right direction

So much has already been written in praise of this book that I really don't have any new words to appreciate!!

This is wonderful book and really deserve five star rating. But this is not the end. Really.
After you are done with this book you are ready to explore other amazing texts in this field. Some of the recommended ones are:
1. Algorithms (4th ed) by Robert Sedgewick
2. And now my favourite: The Art of Computer Programming (Donald E. Knuth). All volumes are exceptional but first volume ...

Amazing if you have the interest and will

I am 16 but I literally am mad about computers.
It has extremely high level of math and is extremely hard to understand at my level (1 year of basic C++).
But with enough research and going through algorithms 2-3 times I do manage to master them.
This book is amazing. I can read it all day all night. The pseudocode can easily be converted to Java and C++ (I make programs in both).
Original cost of this book is around 60-70 dollars but flipkart is selling it for like 375 rupees so I would rea...

Hated it!

FIGURES/ILLUSTRAIONS are not clear so you'll not be able to understand anything. you can imagine how difficult it will be to study GRAPH THEORY without clear diagrams. GRAPH THEORY is also one of the most important concepts just like Asymptotics notations, Dynamic programming etc. I would suggest either you should buy a original copy which is around INR 2000 or purchase it from somewhere who sells preowned original books. You can clearly spot the difference in the images I've uploaded.

Best book for deep dive in Algorithms

This is the best book that I have come across as far as introductory algorithms text goes. The explanations, proofs and applications are concise, clear and on point. This text is perfect for anyone who is willing to learn about algorithms and has the necessary maths as well as CS background.
