Can I have suggestions for "Data structures and algorithms in C++" books which are tailor made for technical interview preparations.

Thanks!

I have mentioned "Data structures and algorithms in C++" in my question.

@jimsweb: The book you suggested has a very low rating. Did you try it personally?

I would recommend the following books. I don't think there are online copies available but they are worth the money you pay for them....

1)Introduction to Algorithms by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, Clifford Stein

2) ADTs, Data Structures, problem solving  by Larry R. Nyhoff


And ofcourse you can download MIT and Stanford lectures from Youtube.

There are no quick fixes for Data Structures and Algos, its something you learn over a period of time. So you can't cram in a day or two just for an interview.

If you want basic training in something more complicated than you'll ever see in your normal coding life, look at the winners of http://www.ioccc.org/.  Try analyzing the programs and figure out what they do.  They may not be the best way to code but it does exercise your ability to analyze what other people write.
