9780131601314: Data Structures and Abstractions With Java

For one-semester Introductory courses or two-semester courses in data structures (CS-2) in the departments of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Business, and Management Information Systems. This highly anticipated innovative book by two of the leading CS-1/CS-2 authors focuses the design specification and implementation of ADTs. This book was created from the ground up with objects and Java in mind and shows students how to use and implement key data organizations. Its unique object oriented presentation divides the material into short bite size segments that are organized into small chapters. This makes learning easier for the student and allows for teaching flexibility.

From the Back Cover:

Written for an introductory course in data structures, typically known as CS-2, this book was designed and built from the ground up with Java and objects in mind. Frank Carrano and Walter Savitch provide instructors and students with a carefully crafted and class-tested approach for teaching ADTs and objects with Java. The book's unique design organizes material in short segments and relatively small chapters. This approach makes learning easier and allows for teaching flexibility. The book shows students how to organize their data by using a list, a dictionary, a stack, a queue, and so on. Using these data organizations, students will learn about related techniques for algorithm development.


  • Separates the specification and implementation of ADTs into individual, but consecutive, chapters.
  • Presents short, bite-sized segments that focus attention on one issue at a time.
  • Organizes material into numerous, relatively small chapters that can be covered in various sequences.
  • Presents highlighted notes emphasizing key material and providing supplementary comments.
  • Offers programming tips that give readers additional programming advice.
  • Contains many figures, making presentation more visual and less imposing than other books.
  • Offers self-test questions throughout chapters, with answers in the back of the book.
  • Integrates Java coverage into the presentation, including the javadoc documentation style for Java programs.
  • Features a Prentice Hall Companion Website available at
