5.0 out of 5 stars Programming (Interviews) Exposed 1 Oct. 2008
Format:Paperback
This book gives an excellent exposé, and is probably one of the best of its kind. It shows the standard of understanding needed for current mainstream programming (for C, C++, C#, &c.). Moreover, it is an excellent book for those beginning a serious venture into programming for the first time, which, though perhaps difficult to understand at first for a beginner, gives a good overview of what needs be learnt and understood in programming for various languages.

Format:Paperback
This book really help me to move to a new possition, it has really good explanations and tips, it will not cover every algorithm you may face on a tech screening or technical interview, but it shows you the way of thinking.

I enjoyed the book and definitelly recommend it.
