"An ideal resource for improving programming knowledge. The challenges of problems from international programming competitions are an effective way to improve algorithmic and coding skills and understanding. This book uses international programming competition-type problems to motivate the study of algorithms, programming, and other topics in computer science. It includes more than 100 programming challenges, as well as the theory and key concepts necessary for approaching them. Problems are organized by topic, and supplemented by complete tutorial material. Readers gain a concrete understanding of both algorithmic techniques and advanced coding topics".
