A reference book written by renowned programming and computer expert author, Yashavant Kanetkar, Data Structures Through C Solutions teaches the fine nuances of data structures to students, emphasising the importance of creating programs utilising a wide variety of data structures, and subsequently imparting the required skills and knowledge to them, for being able to select the best program out of the ones created. It is a known fact that there are multiple ways to create a particular program. This calls on the ability of a programmer to be able to ascertain which one of these ways is the best one for implementing a particular program. This is the key focal point of Data Structures Through C Solutions and has been well elucidated through this book. In addition, this book includes solutions to all the exercises provided in Data Structures Through C Second Edition, providing an added advantage for students of data structures, as they can utilise a combination of these two books, by first solving the problems provided in the precursor book Data Structures Through C Second Edition, and writing their own programs for the exercises given in it, and then comparing their answers with the solutions provided in Data Structures Through C Solutions. Using this recommended method of learning data programs, students can further boost their confidence and strengthen their program writing skills. The book begins with an introductory chapter, and goes on to cover in detail many topics related to data structures including analysis of algorithms, linked lists, strings, sparse matrices, arrays, queues, trees, stacks, and graphs. It also discusses the process of searching and sorting. A popular book, which is swidely used as a guidebook by scores of students and working programming professionals, Data Structures Through C Solutions has been helping both students and teachers to gain a good grasp on the subject.
