5.0 out of 5 stars Quite an interesting read even if you are not going for interviews
The puzzles are a great collection and very well organised. I did not put the book down once I started reading. I am a .Net developers so a couple of .Net examples would have been nice.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable Start To Interview Preparation
This book is a good mix of prose, code samples and problems. I'd recommend it as a good introductory book to get you in the interview mindset.

However, it is deficient if you're aiming for firms like Google and others - for example, there is no mentions of hashtables, possibly one of the most important data structures. You will also want to cover language...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable Start To Interview Preparation, 6 Jan 2013
This book is a good mix of prose, code samples and problems. I'd recommend it as a good introductory book to get you in the interview mindset.

However, it is deficient if you're aiming for firms like Google and others - for example, there is no mentions of hashtables, possibly one of the most important data structures. You will also want to cover language specific nuances separately (e.g. - Java generics), which this book cannot prepare you for. (Effective Java: Second Edition is the book to use for that.)

For more in depth algorithms revision, see The Algorithm Design Manual which has a great selection of problems.

This review is from: Programming Interviews Exposed: Secrets to Landing Your Next Job (Kindle Edition)
The puzzles are a great collection and very well organised. I did not put the book down once I started reading. I am a .Net developers so a couple of .Net examples would have been nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for a review before an interview., 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a book with example interview problems and I found it. Explanations are clear and focus and nuances, which may pop up in a potential interview. Presented examples are not too difficult (not straightforward either!). However, without reading this book I would not be able to give the best answer in an interview (would spent too much time thinking). I don't mind that most of the examples focus on implementing things in C (rarely in C++), as this is the language I prefer.
